Military aircraft collide in mid-air near Rome.

Two Italian air force pilots were killed when the military planes they were flying collided over Guidonia Montecelio, about 35 km north-east of Rome, at midday on Tuesday 7 March.

One of the light aircraft crashed to the ground in a field at the Guidonia air base, the other crashed into a parked car on a street in Colfiorito, a nearby urban area. There were no other people injured.

Witnesses told local media that there were four light aircraft flying in formation when two of the planes collided with each other.
