A Mirage training jet of Pakistan Air Force crashed today after apparently developing some technical problems during a routine mission in the Punjab province.
The spokesman said pilot of the aircraft managed to eject before the crash and no loss of life and property occurred on the ground. “Reason for the crash could not be confirmed yet”, PAF spokesperson was quoted as saying by various local media.
Pakistan’s armed forces have had several air accidents in the past 18 months, including a crash that killed female jet pilot in another training exercise in November.
A Mirage fighter jet of PAF crashed in October while on a routine training flight, killing the pilot.
The aircraft was completely destroyed as a result of the crash.
In April, another training aircraft also crashed into a tree in Kalowal near Jehlum. The pilot remained safe in the accident.
