Deadly Disputes Between Friends

Greece and Turkey are both members of NATO. Turkey is also doing its best to join the European Union, of which Greece is already a member (and a member of its Eurozone). But, this isn't enough to quell the long standing territorial disputes between the nations, not only in Cyprus, but over the extent of Greek and Turkish airspace. Two F-16s collided, possibly killing one of the pilots, as airmen sparred over that territorial dispute yesterday.
