  • Red Arrows Collide During Greek Training

    Two of the Red Arrows have collided over Crete, forcing one pilot to eject before his aircraft crashed onto the Greek island.

    The second plane landed safely along with the rest of the RAF squadron at Iraklion Airport.

    The pilot who parachuted from his aircraft suffered a dislocated shoulder and was taken to hospital.

    The Ministry of Defence confirmed an incident had occurred during the aerobatic team's pre-season training at the Kastelli airforce base.

    "A service inquiry will be convened to identify the cause of the crash," a spokesman added.

    Photos taken after the accident showed one Red Arrow's tail tip snapped off and damage to the back right of the plane.
