LONDON (AP) -

The search has been suspended for two British airmen who are missing after the crash of two RAF Tornado jets off Scotland's coast.

Two other crew members were earlier pulled from the sea by helicopter. Defense officials said some wreckage had been recovered.

They say the search was called off at nightfall due to bad weather, but that it's expected to resume in the morning.

It's not clear whether the two planes crashed into each other.

Defense officials said the two jets were flying over eastern Scotland when contact with them was lost.
