The plane crashed 300 km South-East of Madrid.

A spokesman with Spain's Ministry of Defence said the pilot had been killed.

The Eurofighter crashed near to the Los Llanos air base in Albacete south of Madrid at just after midday (local time).

Emergency services were alerted after the plane crashed on farmland near the Los Llanos base, a spokesman said.

They say the pilot did not have enough time to jump out of the jet.

"Rest in peace, comrade. We won't forget you", it said, posting an image of the Spanish flag pinned with a black ribbon.

Prime Minister Mariano Rajoy offered his condolences to the pilot's family on Twitter and said that he was en route to the site of the accident with the Spanish Minister of Defense, Maria Dolores de Cospedal.

In June 2014, a Eurofighter crashed in Spain, killing the pilot as the aircraft ploughed into the ground short of the runway at Moron air force base near Seville.

Hispanic Day is an annual national Bank Holiday commemorating when Christopher Columbus set foot in the Americas in 1492.
