    Never a nice thing to happen and sad for the families and friends of those who died.

    The military aircraft in question though was an Eurofighter Typhoon, not a Tornado.

    The Eurofighter wasn't lost - it landed safely back at base. The Learjet, sadly, did crash.

    Weird that the Typhoon just landed like nothing and the other jet is cut in half. Incidentaly the spanish Typhoon pilot did not manage to eject. Rip to all.
