Second Hungarian Gripen crashes at domestic air base
By: BETH STEVENSONLONDON Source: a day ago
Hungarian media claims one of the nation’s Saab Gripens has crashed – the second in less than a month – leading to reports that Budapest has grounded its fleet until further notice.

The single-seater C-model is said to have crashed near Kecskemét air base in Hungary, although the pilot managed to eject from the aircraft and is in hospital in a stable condition, according to local media.
