An RAF Tornado has crashed in Argyll, police have confirmed.
The plane is understood to have come down on a hillside near the Rest and be Thankful at Arrochar - about two miles to the west of Loch Lomond.
Two RAF air crew have been killed after a Tornado jet crashed during a training flight in Argyll.
The plane came down on a hillside near the Rest and Be Thankful beauty spot in Glen Kinglass, near Arrochar, at about 1145 BST.
The weather in the area at the time of the crash was said to be overcast with thick clouds.
Andy Graham, 60, a retired rigger who moved to Arrochar three years ago, said he saw two Tornados flying low in the area around lunchtime.
He said: "We get jets flying over here on training exercises quite regularly. It's not unusual to see them and you definitely hear them.
"But today they seemed to be flying much lower than normal. We watched them fly along the loch, up through the glen and towards the Rest And Be Thankful."
