The aircraft were conducting a refueling exercise when the accident occurred. "At approximately 16:00 it was reported that an F-35B made contact with a KC-130J during an air-to-air refueling evolution, resulting in the crash of the F-35B. The pilot of the F-35B ejected successfully and is currently being treated," said the air station. "The KC-130J is on deck in the vicinity of Thermal Airport.

    One of British Airways former Boeing 747-400s had a fire onboard. The aircraft doesn't fly for the airline anymore and was being stored at the Castellon Airport in Spain when the fire broke out. The flames were extinguished by airport fire response and no one was injured during the event.
