Two training jets went down in Turkey last month. This killed four people. People are investigating the incident.

A second fatal air accident happened last week. The two pilots of the F-4E warplane died. People recovered one of the pilot’s bodies, and they search for the body of the second pilot.

Turkey has the second largest military in NATO, and its Air Force patrols the borders with Syria and Iraq.

Difficult words: jet (a fast aeroplane), fatal (deadly), patrol (to keep watch over an area).
