The Air Force says two Greek fighter jets have crashed in mid-air during a training exercise. There was no immediate word on casualties. The Air Force says the F-16 planes -- one a single-seater and one a double-seater -- collided over the sea off the southern coast of the island of Crete early Thursday afternoon. Rescue crews were searching for the three crew members.

The jets had been part of a formation of four aircraft carrying out a training mission.
