A warplane has crashed near the central Anatolian city of Konya, killing two crew, the Turkish military said on Thursday, in the second fatal air accident for the armed forces in less than two weeks.

The F-4E took off from Eskisehir airbase on a planned training flight at 09:00 local time, and came down nearly an hour later for unknown reasons, the Chief of Staff said in a statement. Investigations are already underway to discover why two training jets went down in Malatya Province on February 24, killing four.
