A Hawk jet has been forced to make an emergency landing at RAF Shawbury in north Shropshire.
The aircraft, based at RAF Valley in Anglesey, struck the over-run barrier at the end of the runway at Shawbury at about 13:40 BST.
The Hawks are used for fast-jet advanced pilot training.
RAF Valley said the pilot was uninjured during the "hard landing" and a Ministry of Defence investigation had been launched.
