The military plane "super galeb G-4" crashed this morning near Kovacica. The pilot and a copilot somehow managed to eject out of the plane, but as Telegraf unofficially found out, one of them has died, and the other is in a very serious situation.
The accident occurred around 9:30 near the exit from Kovacica.
The ambulance is at the scene, and the pilot who is in a very serious condition was transported to Military Medical Academy. Unfortunately, one of them was already dead and the crew could only determine the time of death.

The airplane crashed into a field, and the locals claim that they heard the engines stopped running.
- I was at home when I heard the engines stopping and I saw two pilots ejecting. You can also see the crater at the scene - D.B. from Kovacica said.
This is the third fall of Supergaleb - in September 2008 in Batajnica, one pilot has died, the same plane crashed in the area of the village Slatina near Sabac last year, on April 7h, and both of the pilots died on that occasion.
