Third crash of a Eurofighter within a month, the pilot didnt eject and was killed.


A Spanish Air Force Eurofighter Typhoon has crashed at Albacete, southeast on Madrid, Spain, while recovering to Los Lanos airbase after taking part in a National parade. The pilot did not manage to eject from the aircraft and was killed in the accident.

According to the Spanish MoD, the Eurofighter, one of four Typhoons that took part in the parade over Madrid, crashed, for unknown reasons, on approach to Albacete.

Now I'm starting to wonder if there's a problem with the typhoon.

3's too many.

Just more proof too much money is spent on trying to kill each other and not enough on trying to help each other succeed.

You are correct in the problem, but as to the cause, please direct your comments to the places where they want to conquer the world around you.

ETA: And, no, the US is not in the business of conquering the world the last time I checked at least by harsh methods such as communism and radicalized religions.

Because before there was a military and military spending people got along great and didn't try to kill each other.

Three in a month is bad, but doesn't necessarily mean there's a problem. It's all going to depend on what the cause for each turns out to be.

True.

Hopefully they see the cause.

The Italian aircraft I'll almost guarantee was pilot error. It looked like he went over the top of the loop too low and didn't have enough altitude to recover. So we really probably only have two that are unknown causes.

If it happened in the break, he could have stalled, or lost engine power.

Yes, we are having difficult times these days, not only aviation related. Rest in peace those airmen.
