Multiples Perish As Two Air Force Jets Collide In The Sky

By Spy Uganda Correspondent

South Korea: The jets went down in a rice paddy in Sacheon, about 300 kilometers south of Seoul, after colliding with each other in midair at around 1:37 p.m. during training, just minutes after their takeoffs from a nearby base.

Over 62 firefighters and emergency responders were dispatched to the crash site where multiples are said to have perished from. A fire broke out on the rooftop of a church after debris from the jet fell but was soon put out.

Yoon Dae-gyu, a 75-year-old farmer who lived near the crash site, said he heard a thunderous noise and later saw a piece of metal falling from the sky.

“It’s scary imagining that I could have been hit by that,” he said.

The Air Force formed a task force, led by its deputy chief of staff, to handle the aftermath of the accident with a plan to look into what caused it.
