In 15 years this is the first loss of any Lufrwaffe Tiffs.Hope they're okay, but...
I can't get this out of my head.

Likely to be someone who is not familiar with the Bundeswehr or aviation. It happens all the time in the media.I hope all are well.
Odd that the Beeb describe them as being from the 'German Armed Forces', that will be the Luftwaffe then- or does that leave them feeling uneasy?
Why is the word Typhoon verboten?Both jets from Fliegerhorst Laage, near Rostock. Unit TLwG-73.
* Edited to add,
Those familiar with RAF Lincolnshire (MM's home ground of Coningsby and Waddington) may have seen EF2000s ( the word Typhoon is taboo in today's Luftwaffe) from this unit on the annual Cobra Warrior exercise held over the last few years.
Another exercise of this nature is scheduled for this coming September flying from Waddington, with the Israelis and Italians, as well as the Luftwaffe from this unit again.
Time will tell what effect today's tragic collision will have on this exercise.
I hope they are correct, but news elsewhere (see above) sadly would indicate otherwise.
