Nigeria Airforce Jet Crash: One pilot dead

One of the pilots involved in the jets crash earlier today, has died, the Nigerian Air Force confirms, as a video of moments before the crash, emerges.

Two fighter jets on rehearsal for Nigeria’s Independence Day celebrations had crashed in Katampe district of Abuja earlier today, after one of the jet’s wing clipped the other, forcing both to go down.

“Only one of the pilots was able to eject, the other one couldn’t (he is one of the best pilots in the Airforce) and he died on the spot,” a source said.

The source added that the pilot that ejected did not land well and has sustained a serious head injury which requires urgent surgery.
