A pilot who ejected from an F-15 aircraft in Dent County, Mo was released from Barnes Jewish hospital today.

The pilot suffered a dislocated shoulder, broken arm, and minor cuts and bruises after ejecting from a plane yesterday morning before it crashed in Boss, Mo.

The pilot is assigned to the 131st Fighter Wing, a Missouri Air National Guard unit located in St. Louis.

At the time of the incident, four F-15 Eagle fighter aircraft were performing basic training maneuvers in military operating airspace. The other three jets returned to St. Louis without incident.

This accident is currently under investigation.
