ANKARA — Two Turkish F-4 fighter jets crashed Tuesday during a reconnaissance mission in eastern Turkey, killing the four pilots.

The aircraft took off from the Erhac Air Base near Malatya in eastern Turkey. Malatya's governor, Suleyman Kamci, said the aircraft disappeared from radar shortly after they took off for the reconnaissance mission.

Rescue teams were deployed to an area where locals reported an explosion. Unofficial reports said the aircraft could have collided in midair.

During a debate in the Turkish Parliament, Interior Minister Efkan Alam confirmed the death of all four pilots on board. The General Staff also confirmed the death of four pilots.
