UAE pilot ejects from plane after Libya flight

DUBAI, April 27 (Reuters) - The pilot of a United Arab Emirates plane taking part in the air operations in Libya on Wednesday was forced to eject on landing at an airbase in Italy, the official UAE news agency said.

It said the plane veered off course while approaching a runway at the base, forcing the pilot — who survived the incident — to eject. The aircraft was damaged as a result, the agency said, without providing further details.
