    A U.S. Air Force F-16 fighter jet crashed on takeoff near Bagram Air Field in Afghanistan this morning.

    The Pentagon said the pilot ejected safely and is being medically evaluated.

    "Coalition forces are securing the crash site," said Pentagon spokesman Peter Cook.

    Bagram Air Field is located northeast of Kabul, the capital of Afghanistan, and is the U.S. military's main base of operations in Afghanistan.
