    ISLAMABAD: Two Pakistan Air Force light aircraft collided mid-air on Thursday, killing four pilots on a routine training mission northwest of Islamabad, police said.

    It was the sixth Pakistan Air Force crash in seven months and the second in a week, raising concerns over the safety of its largely Chinese and locally made fleet.

    The cause of the accident was not immediately clear.

    One of the two-seater propeller Mushshak planes crashed on a house, injuring a girl and an elderly man, and the second fell in nearby fields in the Rashkai area, 160 kilometres (100 miles) northwest of the capital.

    “Two Pakistan Air Force trainer aircraft collided mid-air. Four pilots were killed, two were trainee pilots and two were instructors,” district police officer Mohammad Hussain said.

    “One of the aircraft crashed over a house, injuring a girl and an elderly man, and the second plane crashed in the fields.” Another police official, Hayatullah, who uses only one name, confirmed the casualties.

    Last Friday, a fighter jet crashed near the southwestern town of Sonmiani but the pilot managed to eject safely.

    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.

    Why surprised buddy? It was paki Mard-e-Momeen trying out their pious skills on Chinese Junk, and they must have thought that they are protected by their almighty; however, no one survived after they tested theirs and Chines Junk's - grit and technology!

    Note the key message here - Police reported this incident NOT PAF!!

    Hence, you can imagine - how many paki a/cs are falling each month and never get reported!

    Its ATC mistake.Again such a ATC mistake is possible anywhere in the world even in india.Who can forget the 1996 mid air collision of saudi ailines plane and Kazakhstan Airlines plane near delhi due to ATC mistake.

    @ajtr you have no idea about civilian and airforce plane, w.r.t ATC. Civilian has different altitudes for different climb and decend. AF has rest of the airspace for their use, specially for Pak, which is more of military rule country.

    Then the chances of a high traffic caused 'mix up' are lower. What caused ATC to make such a mistake then?
    And that both were AF planes makes it even more surprising.

    What could be the reason for collision:

    one possible explanation: The pilots in those two planes wanted to prove who is better muslim, both were supremely confident that being a paki they are better muslim. So they placed a bet (is it allowed?) for a collision, the one who is not a better muslim is supposed to be dead. But alas as all paki wet dreams :rofl:

    6th crash in 7 months. moreover as this involves 2 planes paf lost 7 planes in 7 months and with march incident of mirage pilot bailing out and dying of head injury during an accident within hanger makes victims more than 9(correct me if im wrong). yes paf lost 9 pilots in 7 months- all fighter

    This Charki Dadri Incident Happened due to the reason Kazakh Pilot in IL 76 DISOBEYED ATC Orders. When you speak please speak with Rationale else, its better to remember "To dream of Taking Kashmir".

    ATC Orders were disobeyed by an Indian Airlines Pilot in Singapore Recently, now the CPL Licence for this pilot has been suspended by DGCA.
