Saudi Eurofighter Typhoon Crashes in Yemen

The Joint Saudi-UAE coalition fighting the Yemen's Houthi rebels has lost their first fighter jet during combat operation in the Southern Yemen.

A Royal Saudi Air Force (RSAF) Eurofighter Typhoon crashed in Yemen's Abhyan province while carrying out a combat mission, killing its pilot.

According to Saudi Govt press release, the Eurofighter crashed due to technical reasons and pilot Lt Col Muhanna Al-Baiz did not survive the crash.

This is the first crash of Eurofighter Typhoon during combat operations. In August a UAE Black Hawk military helicopter crashed in Yemen killing the four on board personnels.

Saudi Arabia received its last of the 72 Eurofighters ordered by the Kingdom in June 2017.
