A Swedish air force Gripen fighter suffered a runway excursion at the Ronneby air base.
The JAS-39C belongs to F17 squadron.
The incident occured around 2 p.m. local time. Rescue personnel had to extinguish a small fire.
The pilot escaped largely unhurt, except for dented pride, especially since Swedish authorities say that an initial review suggest the accident was caused by pilot error. A full investigation has been launched.
