ANKARA (Reuters) – A Turkish military training plane crashed in the central province of Kayseri on Tuesday, killing two soldiers, the defence ministry said.

The SF-260 D training aircraft took off from an air base in Kayseri with two pilots on board for training excercises, and crashed for an unknown reason, the ministry said.

Emergency teams were dispatched to the crash site and found out that both pilots were killed in the crash, the ministry added.
