Narrative:
A Saudi lieutenant colonel died Tuesday when his Eurofighter crashed shortly after takeoff on a training flight from Spain's southern Moron air base (LEMO), the Spanish defence ministry said.
The warplane went down after taking off from the air base outside Seville around 9:30 am (0730 GMT), and while the Spanish flight instructor was able to eject and sustained only minor injuries, the Saudi pilot was killed, the ministry said.
