MOOSE JAW, Sask. - A military plane has gone down near a Canadian Forces Base south of Moose Jaw, Sask.

Officials at 15 Wing say two people in the Harvard training aircraft walked away unharmed after what is being called a — quote — "controlled ejection."

Lt. Thomas Edelson says the two in the plane made a decision that landing the aircraft wouldn't be safe.

The Moose Jaw Fire Department tweeted that it was responding under the impression an aircraft had "crashed."

The fire department says there was no fire and crews were called off after base personnel responded.
