Greek Mirage crashes, pilot safe

A Greek Air Force Mirage fighter jet crashed at 12.55 p.m. on Thursday, 10 miles south of Tanagra air force base, according to the defence ministry. The pilot of the fighter jet, which was on a routine training flight, ejected safely before the aircraft fell. The Mirage had earlier taken off from Tanagra with an identical aircraft on a training flight. They were returning to the air base when the accident took place. According to initial reports, the jet fighter was preparing to land when the pilot, Flight Lieutenant Kymonas Hytiris, noticed a problem with the landing gear and was unable to lower the wheels.

You had me in doubt there so I just went through my records and this is what I found regarding that Dutch F-16 mid air:

The accident happened on the 22nd December 1999.

Pilot was 1st LT Lonneke Maes of 315 Sqn.
The F-16 was a F-16AM (MLU upgrade) with serial J-059 and was the very first F-16AM that the KLu lost.

The aircraft collided with Piper PA-28 with registration PH-BLY. Both pilot and student of the PA-28 were killed on impact, the F-16 was badly damaged, several systems out and an engine fire. 1st LT Maes was forced to eject after which the F-16 crashed into a farmers field, not far from where the wreckages of the PA-28 had crashed.
