A search and rescue mission has been scrambled to locate a Royal Malaysian Air Force (RMAF) Hawk 108 fighter jet, which disappeared in the skies over the state of Pahang.
The fighter jet had departed from the Kuantan air force base at 11am local time before losing contact at 11.30am.
It is believed to have disappeared north of Kuantan near the Pahang-Terengganu border.
The RMAF said a search and rescue operation is underway.
