F-16 fire.

Kathimerini English - - Front Page -

A fire broke out yes­ter­day aboard one of sev­eral Greek F-16s that had been about to take off from the mil­i­tary base at Souda on Crete to chase away Turk­ish air­craft that had flown into Greek air space over the Aegean. No in­juries were re­ported. The fire was ex­tin­guished be­fore it could de­stroy the air­craft and the pi­lot was trans­ferred to a mil­i­tary hospi­tal for pre­ven­tive rea­sons. An in­ves­ti­ga­tion was or­dered to de­ter­mine the cause of the blaze.
