Oklahoma Air Force Base Says 2 Killed in Aircraft ‘Mishap’
ENID, Okla. (AP) — Military officials say two airmen have been killed in a “mishap” involving two jets at an Air Force base in northwestern Oklahoma.
Vance Air Force Base said in a news release that two T-38 Talons with two people aboard each aircraft were taking part in a training mission when the mishap occurred shortly after 9 a.m. Thursday.
The military hasn’t released the conditions of the others involved or any names.
TV footage from the scene shows one aircraft upside down on grass near a runway and the second aircraft upright on the runway.
The base about 65 miles northwest of Oklahoma City says on its website that the T-38 Talon is a twin-engine, high-altitude, supersonic jet used in a variety of jet pilot training roles.
