    18/05/2000 13:28:09

    Four people, including two teenagers, were killed Thursday when a Hellenic Aiforce jetfigher crashed into a house Thursday in Antikyra village, Viotia prefecture, in the second Airforce jet crash in 48 hours.

    The two-seat F-4 fighter plane crashed at 10:50 a.m. into a two-storey house, shortly after taking off, together with a second F-4, from the airbase at Andravida on a training flight.

    The F-4's two pilots were killed in the crash, as they failed to use the automatic ejection system.

    The jet crashed into the two-storey house and burst into flames. A young woman managed to escape the blaze, but fire-fighters later discovered the charred bodies of two girls, aged 15 and 16, who were at home studying.

    A Hellenic Airforce jetfighter crashed into a house Thursday in Antikyra village, Viotia prefecture, and the two pilots were missing, the Air Force General Staff (GEA) said.

    The two-seat F-4 fighter plane crashed at 10:50 a.m. GEA said the fate of the pilot and co-pilot on board was not known, and it was feared they had not ejected.

    It was also unclear whether there was anyone inside the house at the time of the accident.
