The third pilot witnessed the collision over the Fleesensee and reported seeing two parachutes.

"All three aircraft were unarmed, and after 20 minutes for unknown reasons, two of the three Eurofighters touched each other in the air," air force commander Ingo Gerhartz said.

"According to the third pilot, who is of course still in shock, he could see the two parachutes attached to the eject seats and he confirmed that both parachutes could be seen."
