MADRID: A Spanish Eurofighter jet crashed yesterday after taking part in a military display in Madrid for Spain’s national day, killing its pilot, the defence ministry said. “As a result of the accident, the pilot of the plane that crashed on its approach to landing has died,” the ministry said in a statement. It said the Eurofighter went down near a military base at Albacete, 300 kilometres (180 miles) southeast of the capital. The Twitter account for the defence ministry’s chief of staff confirmed the pilot’s death. “Rest in peace, comrade. Thank you for helping us to celebrate the day you have given your life for. We won’t forget you,” it said, posting an image of the Spanish flag pinned with a black ribbon.–Agencies
