    Pak Air Force jet crashes; pilot killed

    ISLAMABAD (PTI): A China-made Pakistan Air Force jet crashed Wednesday while on a routine training mission in southwestern Balochistan province, killing the pilot.

    "A F-7PG PAF fighter aircraft, while on a routine training mission, crashed 24 nautical miles north of Quetta (the capital of Balochistan)," a PAF statement said.

    The pilot was killed in the crash, the statement said.

    "No loss to civilian life or property on ground has been reported," it added.

    The PAF ordered an official inquiry to determine the cause of the accident.

    The Chinese-made aircraft came down near Pishin, 50 km from Quetta, shortly after taking off from an airbase, TV news channels reported.

    This was the fourth air force jet to crash in three months, media reports said.

    Two pilots were killed in recent accidents and a helicopter crash in June last year killed four military personnel.

    The PAF has a large fleet of Chinese aircraft, including F-7PGs and A-5s.

    It also operates US-made F-16s and French Mirage jets.

    It recently inducted the JF-7 Thunder jet which was jointly developed by China and Pakistan.

    QUETTA: A pilot was killed when his Pakistan Air Force plane crashed Wednesday during a training mission in Balochistan province, an air force spokesman said.

    “It was a Chinese-made F-7PG training aircraft,” Air Commodore Anis Mirza told AFP.

    The plane crashed in Pishin district, 65 kilometres north of the provincial capital Quetta, during a “routine” training mission, he said, adding that the pilot “embraced martyrdom”.

    The cause of the crash was not immediately known, he said. An investigation is under way.

    It was the fourth air force jet to crash in training in over three months.

    Two pilots were killed in the other incidents and a helicopter crash last June killed four military personnel.

    The Pakistan Air Force has a fleet of Chinese aircraft including F-7PGs and A-5s, plus US-built F-16s and French Mirages. It recently acquired medium-tech JF-17, or Thunder jets, manufactured jointly by China and Pakistan.

    May be PAF sends F-16s to intercept American drones? Uncle sam looks at the radar and turns of the F-16 engine useing his satellite? :D

    Nothing wrong about a crash.

    It happens.

    It was all because the Chinese plane had an imported engine.
