They've retracted the fatality report, not sure at this point.

On a fighter site that I am a member of, someone posted that it was true, and a member of his squadron, doing a familiarization ride. I did a few of these....two with the Danes; one with the Brits.

My guess it is true, and they pulled the release until Next of Kin are notified.

Terrible day. :(
