A member of the Belgian air force has been rescued from a French power line that his parachute became entangled in.

A Belgian Air Force F-16 Fighting Falcon (Viper) crashed in western France on Thursday but there were no reports of any casualty. Both pilots of the plane ejected safely with the second landing on the ground.

One pilot was rescued after safely ejecting from the plane, while the other pilot got caught on a 250,000-volt electricity line after ejecting.

A large rescue involving 100 personnel is underway as crews attempt to free one of the pilots left dangling almost 100ft in the air.

Images published in local media showed the pilot dangling from the cords attached to the parachute which had been ensnared by a cable next to the electricity pylon.

Ouest-France reported that the aircraft had taken off at the Florennes airbase near Namur in Belgium and was en route to the French naval airbase at Lann-Bihoué, in the Morbihan department, western France.

The Belgian air force commander Frederik Vansina told reporters in Brussels that the incident appeared to have been caused by an engine problem with the plane, which was built in 1983, but that an investigation would provide further details.

Officials evacuated eight homes with a total of 15 residents, according to Agence France-Presse.

French news website Le Telegramme reported that fire was reported from the crash site and a house that the plane had hit while coming down. "The damage was serious". "They were both localised and are alive", it said in a statement. Several trees caught fire from the crash as well, according to a witness.
