2 Eagles crash, 1 pilot dead.
EGLIN AIR FORCE BASE, Fla. — One of the F-15C fighter pilots involved in what the Air Force said was likely a mid-air collision Wednesday during a training mission has died. The other is in good condition at Eglin Hospital.
"The 33rd fighter Wing Nomads and Team Eglin have suffered a great loss today and my heart goes out to the family and friends of our fallen airman," said Col. Todd Harmer, the commander of the air wing that included the two downed jets, in a statement. "We will continue to do anything we can to assist our families and airmen at this tragic time."
