Taiwan Loses Two Fighter Jets in Apparent Collision

A Taiwanese Air Force Pilot Has Been Killed And Another Is Missing After Their Fighter Jets Disappeared In A Suspected Midair Collision Off The Island’s Southern Coast, Officials Said.

The Crash On Monday Was The Third Such Incident In The Past Half-Year, At A Time When The Island’s Armed Forces Are Having To Intercept Chinese Aircraft On An Almost Daily Basis.

The National Rescue Command Centre Said That The Fighters, Each With One Pilot On Board, Crashed Into The Sea Off The Island’s Southeastern Coast After They Apparently Collided In Midair During A Training Mission.

One Of The Pilots Was Found Unconscious In The Sea But Could Not Be Resuscitated And Was Pronounced Dead At The Hospital.

Rescuers Were Still Searching For The Remaining Pilot.
