Wreckage of missing Swiss fighter jet found

The Swiss Air Force have found the wreckage of the missing FA 18 fighter jet that disappeared over the Susten pass yesterday afternoon.

Searches are continuing for the missing pilot.

Three army helicopters took off on Monday afternoon to help look for the missing one-seater fighter jet and pilot, both of which had disappeared earlier that day flying over the mountains in central Switzerland.

The Federal Department of Defence say they can't yet access the crash site on foot due to poor weather conditions.
