Eurofighter jet crashes at air base

An air force combat jet crashed just before a planned landing at a base in southern Spain, killing the pilot, the defence ministry said.

The Eurofighter Typhoon aircraft went down at the end of a routine practice flight at the Moron de la Frontera base near Seville, ministry spokesman Miguel Morer said.

The ministry said in a tweet that the pilot, Captain Fernando Lluna Carrascosa, died in the crash close to the end of a runway.

The ministry said the cause of the accident was being investigated.
