    MEXICO, November 28 (RIA Novosti) - A training plane crashed during an air show in Venezuela on Tuesday, and a military helicopter went down during a rescue mission, Mexican media said on Wednesday.

    A Chinese-made K8 training plane fell near the Libertador Air Base during an air show to mark the Air Force day in the central Venezuelan state of Aragua.

    During a rescue operation for two pilots, who managed to eject, a French-made Cougar helicopter also went down. The crew of the aircraft, owned by the country’s rescue service, was unharmed in the accident.

    Technical malfunction is seen as the main cause for the K8 crash.

    The Libertador Air Base made headlines when another accident took place five days ago. Ywo light OV-10 Bronco planes collided in midair, killing one person and injuring three. The planes were on a training flight to prepare for the Air Force day parade.
