A devastating incident unfolded on Thursday in central Konya as a training plane belonging to the renowned aerobatic team Turkish Stars crashed near the runway during landing.

The pilot, who managed to eject with a parachute, survived and was rushed to the hospital for precautionary measures. However, tragically, the construction machine operator sergeant lost his life in the accident.

The F5 training plane, operated by the Turkish Stars stationed at the 3rd Main Jet Base Command, collided with a construction machine that was in operation close to the runway during its landing attempt.

Reports indicate that Pilot Ş.G. successfully ejected from the aircraft using a parachute, narrowly escaping the crash. Meanwhile, the construction machine operator sergeant, unfortunately, succumbed to injuries sustained in the incident.

Emergency response teams, including police, firefighters and medical personnel, swiftly mobilized to the scene upon receiving the alert. As a precautionary measure, a military helicopter airlifted the injured pilot to Selçuk University Faculty of Medicine.

Investigations into the cause of the accident are ongoing, with accident prevention teams diligently working at the crash site to gather crucial evidence and assess the situation.
