Two Colombian Air Force T-27 Tucano planes collided mid-air during a training flight near the Apiay air base on Sunday.
According to the statement released by the Air Force, one pilot, a lieutenant colonel, has died.
“An inspection commission was sent to the scene of the incident to determine the causes [of the collision],” it said.
A video uploaded to social media allegedly shows the moment of the incident. Several aircraft are seen flying close to each other, and, at one point, a wing of one of the planes bursts into bright flames.
