MIAMI — Two fighter jets collided in mid-air off the Florida Panhandle Wednesday during a training mission.

Search and rescue teams are en route to the crash while the conditions of the two pilots is unknown.

The two F-15C Eagle fighter jets disappeared about 3 p.m. ET off the Florida Panhandle over the Gulf of Mexico, said Eglin Air Force Base spokesman Sgt. Brian Jones. The crash occurred about 50 miles south of Tyndall Air Force Base.

FOX News' Steve Centanni and The Associated Press contributed to this report.
