Police said the plane came down in the Zemmer area, between the city of Trier and the U.S. Air Force's Spangdahlem Air Base.

An American F-16 fighter jet crashed Tuesday near the city of Trier in western Germany, the German air force told AFP, with the pilot surviving after using the ejector seat.

The single-engine fighter, belonging to the 480th Fighter Squadron, 52nd Fighter Wing, crashed around 3 p.m. local time in Zemmer, roughly six miles from the base, officials said.

World - A United States military fighter jet crashed on Tuesday near the south-western German city of Trier, leaving its pilot with minor injuries. Emergency services were on the scene, according to the German police.

At least 24 F-16 fighter jets and around 4,000 USA troops are stationed at the Spangdahlem air base.

The pilot was able to eject out of the aircraft in time and was taken to hospital suffering minor injuries. She had no immediate details about the cause of the crash. The cause of the September 30 accident remains under investigation.

In June this year, two of the air force's Eurofighter jets crashed after colliding in mid-air in northeastern Germany. The pilot was engaged in a routine training flight.
