CAPTION ONLY: PILOT KILLED IN CRASH OF U.S. SPY PLANE

Firefighters survey the scene of a U.S. Air Force U-2 spy plane that crashed after takeoff from an air base in Britain on Tuesday. The pilot ejected from the plane but died later at a hospital. An Air Force spokesman could not confirm media reports that the reconnaissance plane, which was assigned to support NATO operations in the Balkans, had been headed for a mission over Bosnia.
