Early this morning an F-16 fighterplane from the royal Netherlands Airforce crashed in Ghazni province. The pilot was unfortunately killed. The family of the deceased pilot has been informed about this tragic event.
The 29 year old pilot came from Volkel airforce base.
The F-16 stationed at Kabul was on it's way to the south of Afghanistan to support groundforces.
The aircraft crashed in difficult terrain in the Ghazni province, just north of the Uruzgan province. The aircraft was flying at high altitude at the time of the crash. That's why we are assuming an accident.
The pilot and the wreckage were found by an American rescueteam.
An investigation to the cause of the accident will be initiated by the royal Netherlands Airforce.
