Indonesia T-50 fighter jet crashes, 2 pilots killed — reports

JAKARTA, Indonesia — A T-50 Golden Eagle fighter jet, similar to those recently delivered to the Philippine Air Force (PAF), crashed in Indonesia killing two pilots, local media reported.

Video circulating on social media showed a fighter plane performing manoeuvres in the skies above Yogyakarta before spiralling toward the ground at speed and disappearing from view.
Seconds later a thick, dark plume of smoke rose beyond the horizon, as people in the video can be heard screaming.
Indonesian air force spokesman Dwi Badarmanto confirmed a T-50 Golden Eagle fighter plane had crashed during a demonstration.
