Spanish Eurofighter Typhoon DA 6

Spanish Eurofighter Typhoon DA6 came down as it was flying out of Getafe - home of the Spanish Flight Test Centre for the aircraft - at an altitude of 15,000 metres (45,000ft). Both its engines failed simultaneously and, despite efforts by the Comandante Ignatio Lombo and Coronel Eduardo Cuadrado, who successfully ejected from the plane, it crashed near the village of Belvis de la Jara, Spain.
