A Swiss F-5 fighter jet crashed near a northern Dutch air base on Thursday ahead of an air show in the Netherlands, emergency services said, apparently after a mid-air collision. Video footage posted online by news website showed the plane in free fall for several seconds. The pilot of the plane that crashed ejected before impact, the fire department said. Spokeswoman Brigitte Matter of the Menameradiel municipality said the pilot was not badly hurt.
