"Je peux confirmer qu'un avion s'est écrasé", a indiqué le porte-parole sans être en mesure de préciser si l'accident avait fait des victimes.

Un avion militaire, Eurofighter, vient de s'écraser sur la base militaire de Los llanos près d'Albacete, à 300 km au sud-est de Madrid.

L'Espagne célèbre ce jeudi sa fête nationale, symbolisant son unité menacée par la crise Catalogne. Il participait au défilé de la fête nationale à Madrid, selon un porte-parole du ministère de la Défense.

Le délégué du gouvernement central à Albacete, Aquilino Iniesta, a indiqué aux médias que le pilote de l'avion de chasse a trouvé la mort dans cet accident. Deux appareils de ce type s'étaient déjà écrasés en Espagne en 2010 et 2014.

Le Premier ministre espagnol Mariano Rajoy et le roi Felipe VI avaient assisté à la parade militaire dans les rues de la capitale, un peu plus tôt, pour célébrer la découverte de l'Amérique en 1492 par Christophe Colomb.
