    A J-7 fighter jet crashed this morning in downtown Shantou, a city in Guangdong Province, setting a house on fire and injuring four people inside.

    The air crash happened around 9am. The pilot parachuted to safety but his aircraft fell on a house in the city's Jinping District, setting off a big explosion.

    Three poeple were slightly injured and another was seriously injured. The injured were sent to a hospital for fire injuries.

    The local fire brigade confirmed that crashed aircraft was a J-7 jet fighter, not a helicopter as CCTV news originally reported.

    J-7 fighter Jet is one of the major fighters catering to People’s Liberation Army’s Air Force and Chinese Navy’s Air Force.

    Though the production of J-7 ceased in 2006, it still remains an important position in China’s air force equipage for its high performance, flexibility, and low cost.

    Only reason that news got out is because the Jingaling crashed in a residential area....

    Paki pilots routinely complain to anyone that will listen that the J-7 and K-8's are complete pos that are in service only because their bhikari mulk cannot afford anything better....
