Earlier today 2 Hellenic Air Force F-16 aircraft collided in mid air during a training exercise south of Crete.
All reports indicate that one pilot is dead and one wounded.
The aircraft belonged to 340 Squadron based at the 115th Combat Wing in Souda. They were part of a flight of multiple aircraft, 6 or 8. One of the aircraft was a single seat C model and the other a two seat D model. Two pilots were rescued shortly after their ejection. The third was found dead several hours later.
This is the second mid air collision between HAF F-16s. The first happened in 2004 and involved 2 F-16D Block 30 aircraft.
