Greek fighter jet crashes in Spain: Ministry

AFP , Monday 26 Jan 2015

A Greek fighter jet crashed on Monday shortly after it took off from a military airbase in southeastern Spain, the Spanish defence ministry said.

Firefighters are at the scene of the accident at the base at Los Llanos near the city of Albacete but it was not immediately clear how many people were on board and if they were injured, a ministry spokesman said.

"An F-16 crashed during takeoff in the parking area of other planes. We don't have more information," he said.

The base is often used to train NATO pilots.
