    Two RF-4 jet fighters belonging to Turkish Air Forces crashed late Feb. 24 in Malatya, southeastern Anatolia region due to unknown reasons, leaving two pilots and two technicians killed, the Turkish army has said.

    In a written statement the Chief of General Staff confirmed that two fighters that have taken off from Malatya Erhaç 7th Air Base at 6.07 p.m. were lost radar connection at 7.05 p.m. “The debris of our two planes were found at 8.45 p.m and our four hero pilots were martyred,” it said.

    The statement said two fighters were crashed because of an accident but did not detail how the accident did occur. Interior Minister Efkan Ala did also confirm that four soldiers were killed in the accident butt declined to give details on how the incident did take place.

    The NTV said the incident might have been occurred because of an accident during the formation flight of two jet fighters. The local eyewitnesses mentioned about bad weather conditions.
