Mirage 2000 down in Northern France,
Reports that a Mirage 2000 has gone down in Northern France, thoughts go out to the crew, no word as yet on how they are.

The aircraft, a Mirage 2000D, is from Base aérienne 133 Nancy-Ochey. Contact was lost around 11.00 local time and debris has been found near the town of Mignovillard in the Jura.

Still no news on crew(2). Search hampered by snow overnight. (Update at 1530...search of crash site and surrounding area for the crew still continues....They are still officially listed as missing..)

Not looking like a reasonable outcome:

Very sad,

Well, it was foreseeable those last hours, but it's now announced by the french gov: both crew members lost their lives.

RIP Lt A. M. and Cne B. C.

Another sad day for military aviation. It's hit hard and both crew members were experienced and also combat vets! RIP

A sad loss for their families and colleagues.
The French media report seems unnecessarily brutal in its detail. I'm sure we can all imagine the aftermath without being taken through the process step by step
