    Turkish fighter jet crashes during training flight, two dead

    (Reuters) - A Turkish warplane has crashed near the central Anatolian city of Konya, killing the two pilots aboard, the military said on Thursday, in the second fatal air accident for Turkey's armed forces in less than two weeks.

    The F-4E took off from Eskisehir airbase on a planned training flight at 0900 local time, and came down nearly an hour later, the Chief of Staff said in a statement.

    "It crashed in Konya, for unknown reasons. The two pilots are dead. An investigation into the causes of the accident has been started," the statement said.

    An inquiry is already under way to discover why two training jets went down in Malatya Province on Feb. 24, killing four.

    Turkey has the second largest military in NATO and its airforce has played an active role in patrolling its troubled borders with Syria and Iraq.

    However, Ankara has so far declined to take a direct role in U.S.-led bombing raids against Islamic State, citing security concerns and a disagreement over strategy.

    RIP to the pilots.

    Turkey should reconsider flying F-4s for now since 2 incidents happened in less than 2 weeks.

    What is the average crash rate of different air forces per year?
