Spanish military aircraft crashed at the end of National Day parade

Spain’s National Day was today celebrated in the background of one of the most serious crisis the country is facing. In a show of unity, Spanish citizens and those living in Catalonia waved Spanish and Catalunya flags side by side in a bid to calm down the division following the independence referendum in the Catalonian region.

The country today seemed to rise up to the National Day occasion, with the Spanish King Felipe and the Royal family present at a strong military parade in Madrid where, for the first time in seven years, the parade was held in the Paseo de la Castellana – one of the largest open areas in the Spanish capital.

Meanwhile, a military aircraft of the Spanish Air Force crashed at the end of the parade. The Defence Ministry confirmed that the pilot died when the plane crashed into fields near the town of Albacete while returning to base. The cause of the incident is being investigated.
