Four Eurofighter Typhoons participated in a flyover during Spain’s National Day parade. Sadly, only three of them got back to base.
After the flyover, one of the pilots crashed while approaching the runway. The plane came to its fiery end in a field in the town of Los Llanos. There is no word whether anyone was injured on the ground.
