Eurofighter pilot killed during air show crash in Italy

A Eurofighter Typhoon has crashed into the sea during an airshow display in Italy.

The Italian Air Force F-2000A Typhoon crashed into the sea off Terrancia, 47 miles south of Rome.

Horrifying footage uploaded to social media shows the aircraft beginning the manoeuvre as it climbs above the clouds.


The Typhoon was filmed performing a huge loop before descending back down towards the sea.

But it is us unable to regain altitude and smashes into the ocean, leaving a huge cloud of water and debris hanging in the air.

The event was attended by thousands of spectators and  gasps can be heard from the crowd as the jet plunges into the sea.

Sadly the pilot, Capt. Gabriele Orlandi, failed to eject from the aircraft before the collision.
