A military plane of the Spanish Air Forces has crashed near the Los Llanos airbase in Albacete when it returned from the military parade in Madrid dedicated to the Spanish National Day, the Spanish Defense Ministry said on Thursday.
The Ministry of Defense has confirmed the accident but didn't specify the details.
The accident occurred at 12:09 local time. The firefighters, national police and ambulance personnel are working on the scene.
