A Spanish military plane has crashed into the sea off the coast of Murcia.

The C-101 training jet was filmed by onlookers as it hit the water at high speed near La Manga.

The video shows a plane nose-diving into the sea a short distance from a beach.

The jet is believed to be part of Spain’s Patrulla Aguila, a aerobatic display squadron similar to the Red Arrows.

The pilot was able to eject from the plane before the crash according to a air force spokesman.

They added rescue vessels have been searching for the airman, believed to be a pilot instructor.
