Kathimerini English - - Front Page -

Two Greek air force pi­lots safely ejected yes­ter­day be­fore their jet crashed off the is­land of Samos in the south­east­ern Aegean Sea. The Mi­rage 2000 fighter jet had been tak­ing part in a mil­i­tary drill along with three more air­craft when its en­gine lost power shortly be­fore 1.30 p.m. The two pi­lots, who were not in­jured, were picked up by a Greek army ves­sel that was sail­ing in the area. An in­ves­ti­ga­tion was launched to de­ter­mine the cause of the air­craft’s mal­func­tion.
