Two Dead, Two Hurt
Two German Tornadoes collided in the
skies over Garding Wednesday, killing the crew of one warplane,
while the other was able to eject.
Air traffic controllers in northern Germany say the two aircraft
had just completed a turn at 15,000 feet when they ran into each
"At the end of the curve, the signal just disappeared from the
screen," air traffic control spokesman Axel Raab said.
Both crew members who survived were hurt.
Germany has about 300 Tornadoes in its air fleet. Since they
first started flying the aircraft, 41 Tornado crashes have killed
33 German pilots.
