A Jordanian air force pilot was killed on Monday after his F-16 jet crashed due to a technical fault during a training exercise, the army said.
In 2015, a Jordanian pilot and an Iraqi trainee were killed when a light training aircraft -- a T67 Firefly -- crashed during a routine military exercise.
In 2013, another Firefly crashed in the north of the kingdom because of technical problems, killing the pilot and a trainee.
Jordan is part of the US-led coalition of Arab and Western countries carrying out air strikes against the ISIL group, which controls parts of Iraq and neighbouring Syria.Last Mod: 05 Aralık 2016, 17:49
