10 killed in Spain aircraft crash


Madrid Eight French and two Greek military personnel died on Monday when a Greek fighter jet crashed on takeoff at a military base in Spain housing a NATO training centre for elite pilots.
The two-seat F-16 jet “lost power” as it took off from the base near the southeastern city of Albacete and crashed into an area where other planes were parked, damaging five other aircraft, the defence ministry said in a statement.

Television footage showed flames and thick black smoke billowing from the crash site, as sirens wailed in the background.
