The two crew were on a low level exercise from RAF Upper Heyford in Oxfordshire when the aircraft struck a bird, this shattered a section of the windshield and caused other damage to the aircraft. As a result of the damage the crew abandoned the aircraft by way of the escape capsule. The jet flew on for a short way before crashing on a open area of hill where it was completely destroyed.
