Images taken by lifeboat crew reveal the scene of a Tornado jet crash off the west coast of Scotland on Thursday.
The two crew members from RAF Lossiemouth ejected from the aircraft and were receiving treatment to injuries in hospital in Inverness.
The Ministry of Defence (MoD) said it was hoped the pair would be released from hospital later on Friday.
Photographs taken by Stornoway RNLI show lifeboat volunteers recovering pieces of wreckage from the Minch.
The jet came down near Gairloch on the Scottish mainland.
A Royal Navy minehunter, HMS Blyth, has been on the scene searching for the aircraft.
The MoD said a full investigation into the cause of the incident would take place.
