DARYN KAGAN, CNN ANCHOR: I want to the update you now on this developing story out of Britain. Two F-18 (sic), two Air Force fighter jets are missing. The Pentagon saying that these jets -- not these particular jets. This is a picture of what the jets look like.
But the two in question were on a training exercise in the Scottish Highlands. The planes did not return to Royal Air Force base at Lakenheath as they were scheduled. Pentagon officials are saying the two jets were on a routine mission and they can't at this point what has happened to the planes. That Lakenheath base is located about 70 miles northeast of London. We'll continue to follow that story as it develops.
