The aircraft crashed around 15.15h local time at Volkel AB. The aircraft was practising touch-and-goes on the base as part of its regular training syllabus. During one of those manoeuvres the engine stalled after a birdstrike and both pilots had to bail out. The crash still occured on the base between a number of shelters. Both pilots ejected safely and there are no reports of injured people on the ground.
