Just over an hour ago, a Spanish Air Force McDonnell Douglas EF-18AM Hornet of Ala 12 crashed near to Torrejón Air Base, just outside of Madrid. Unfortunately, the pilot has died. Reportedly, the crash occurred as the aircraft was making a takeoff manoeuvre
The tragic accident comes 5 days after a Spanish Eurofighter Typhoon crashed at Albacete Air Base, also killing the pilot, Captain Borja Aybar of Ala 14.
Torrejon Air Base released a short statement on Twitter: May the Virgin of Loreto accompany you to Heaven.
I will add more to this thread as new information is released, at the moment there is not much to go on.
