BRUSSELS (Reuters) - A Belgian air force mechanic servicing a warplane at a base in the south of the country opened fire and destroyed another F-16 jet fighter on the tarmac, public broadcaster VRT said on Friday, citing unidentified sources.

An investigation has been opened into Thursday's incident and the commander of the Florennes airfield told RTBF television that the inquiry would look at whether there was any wrongdoing.
