    According to the
    Inter Services
    Public Relations
    (ISPR), a
    Pakistan Army
    training plane
    crashed in
    Gujranwala,
    killing both of
    its pilots,
    Express News
    reported on
    Tuesday.
    ISPR further
    stated that the
    plane crashed
    because of
    technical
    problems.The
    military said in a
    statement a
    “small two-
    seater Mushshak
    aircraft on a
    routine training
    flight crashed
    due to technical
    fault near
    Gujranwala,” 151
    kilometres
    southeast of
    Islamabad.
    “Both the pilots
    embraced
    shahadat
    (martyrdom)”, it
    added.
    The plane caught
    fire after the
    crash, sources
    said.
    Police and army
    officials have
    reached the site
    of the crash and
    cordoned off the
    area while a
    rescue operation
    is underway.
    The Pakistan
    army uses
    Mushshak
    aircraft to train
    pilots
    commissioned in
    its aviation
    wing.
    The aircraft,
    which is
    manufactured
    indigenously, is a
    big source of
    export earnings
    for Pakistan and
    sold to several
    Middle Eastern
    countries.
    The exact cost of
    the aircraft and
    number sold have
    not been made
    public.
