An airplane crashed on Thursday near the Croatian coastal city of Zadar, killing two members of the Croatian Air Force, the Ministry of Defence said.
The ministry said the deceased were a flight instructor and a cadet, who were flying a small Zlin aircraft.
The accident happened at around 4.00 p.m. local time near the village of Biljane Donje during a regular training flight.
This was the second fatal accident for the Croatian Air Force this year.
On January 27, a Kiowa OH-58D military helicopter with two crew members on board crashed into the Adriatic Sea between Zablace and Zlarin in the Sibenik archipelago, killing both pilots.
