WASHINGTON — One US Air Force pilot was killed and another was injured after a U-2 spy plane crashed late Tuesday in northern California, the service announced.

The pilots, who weren't immediately identified, ejected shortly after taking off from Beale Air Force Base on a training mission in a rural part of the state, the service confirmed.

The single-engine jet made by Lockheed Martin Corp flies at the height of 70 thousand feet, with a range of 7 thousand miles, and dates to the 1950s.
