Plane carrying 2 collides with German fighter jet

Two people were feared dead after their light aircraft collided with a Eurofighter jet during an exercise they were both taking part in over central Germany on Monday, officials said.

The pilot and passenger aboard the military-chartered Learjet were missing after their small plane crashed in a hilly rural area close to several homes and burst into flames.


The accident happened around 1240 GMT in the Olsberg-Elpe district of North Rhine-Westphalia state, about 420 kilometres (260 miles) southwest of Berlin.

The German military jet and a second Eurofighter taking part in the exercise were able to land afterwards at an air base near Cologne.
