Two airmen die in ‘mishap’ near Enid Okla.

Enid, Okla. — An Air Force base commander says two U.S. airmen were killed in an accident involving two jets during the landing phase of a training exercise in north central Oklahoma.

Addressing a news conference Thursday afternoon, Vance Air Force Base Col. Corey Simmons declined to identify the two aboard the T-38 Talon who died around 9 a.m.

He says two other airmen aboard an identical jet involved in the crash are not hurt.

Simmons says an investigation into the cause of the crash is underway.
