California Air National Guard F-15s were deployed to Starokostiantyniv Air Base in Ukraine to train alongside Ukrainian fighters, reported Air Force Times earlier this month. A Ukrainian Air Force pilot was also killed during what the Ukrainian Defense Ministry called "a training and combat flight".

The Su-27UB fighter aircraft came down near the village of Ulaniv in Khmelnytsky district, Vinnytsia region, Ukraine, at around 5 p.m.

The authority added that all aviation involved in the Clear Sky drills, the multinational air force exercise in central Ukraine, meets all technical requirements, and the aircraft was duly examined before the flights.

"This is a sad day for the United States and Ukraine", Maj. "We will provide more information as soon as it becomes available", the U.S. Air Forces in Europe and Air Forces Africa said in a statement.

In its own statement, the U.S. Air Force was not immediately able to confirm any casualties. Both the USA and Ukrainian governments are investigating what caused Wednesday's crash. "It is now under investigation and we will continue to provide more information as it becomes available", it added.

Though we don't yet know the exact reason why the USA pilot was flying in the Flanker, Approximately 950 personnel from Belgium, Denmark, Estonia, The Netherlands, Poland, Romania, Ukraine, the United Kingdom, and the United States are taking part in the drills.

"This year marks the 25th anniversary of collaboration between the California Air National Guard and Ukraine as part of U.S. European Command's State Partnership Program, and this exercise will include robust participation of California ANG units".
