    Pakistan air force plane crashed in SW Balochistan province

    2012-06-12 18:46:06
    ISLAMABAD, June 12 (Xinhua) -- A Pakistan air force training plane crashed on Tuesday afternoon in country's southwestern province of Balochistan, local media and officials said.

    Both pilots on board, one instructor and a trainee, were safe in the incident as they ejected from the plane before it crashed, Pakistan air force (PAF) spokesman told media.

    Earlier reports said that both pilots went missing after the plane crashed.

    Local Urdu TV channels quoted PAF official as saying that the training plane crashed at about 02:30 p.m. local time in Othal area of Hub district in Balochistan province.

    The plane took off from the PAF Base Masroor, Pakistan's largest airbase located in Mauripur area of southern port city of Karachi.

    The Mirage training jet was on a routine training flight over the Hub district when it crashed.

    According to PAF spokesman, they have started investigations about the matter.

    Local media reported that huge fire erupted when the plane hit the ground.

    Civil and army rescue teams and fire fighters rushed to the crash site.

    PAF has seen a rise in air crashes in recent months.

    On May 17, at least four pilots were killed and five people were injured when two PAF trainer planes crashed after bumping into each other on a training mission in Nowshera, a district some 100 km northwest of the country's capital Islamabad.

    It may come out as NOTAMs (Notice to Airmen).

    NOTAMs alert aircraft pilots of any hazards en route or at a specific location, like when field firing is taking place etc.

    If Pak aircraft crash on regular basis, then the NOTAM would be out to warn pilots of PAF crashing aircraft around Pak airspace! ;)

    A Pakistani fighter jet crashed in the south of the country on Tuesday while on routine training but the pilot ejected safely and there were no casualties on the ground, an Air Force official said.

    The French-built Mirage jet took off from the Pakistan Air Force’s Masroor Base in the port city of Karachi and crashed near the town of Uthal in southwestern Balochistan province, Air Force spokesman Squadron Leader Mohammad Nadeem said.

    Uthal is around 60 kilometers west of Karachi.

    “The pilot ejected successfully and safely,” the spokesman said, adding the cause of the accident would be determined after an investigation. No loss of civilian life or property was reported on ground, he added.

    It was the second Mirage aircraft crash in the region in a month. A Mirage-V crashed on May 11 while its pilot ejected safely as well.

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

    Re: Pakistan air force plane crashed in SW Balochistan province

    the rate of crash in paf is now much higher than rate of crash in iaf.

    moreover is it possibel that BLA or BRA is anyway responsible for gunning down this plane. they have done this before

    Re: Pakistan air force plane crashed in SW Balochistan province

    this actually backs up the point that i had made earlier. basically almost the entire of PAF bar a handful (2-3 squadrons) of F-16s is either obsolete, technologically behind or too old to fly. or all three. its mirage fleet - something like 50% of its fleet strength - is simply too old. they are husbanding them with upgrades and limited flying hours. their f-7s consist of 15-20 year old versions and newer 10 year old ones, which are again outclassed by indian planes and are basically point defence interceptors. the jf-17 is the great white hope but one has already crashed reportedly due to structural problems indicating this low tech plane (at the level of yesterdays f-20 tigershark, today) was rushed to production without adequate tests and which will require time consuming fixes

    basically apart from the f-16s, the paf does not have any truly modern planes.
    in contrast, india has around 150 su-30 mkis, and has mig29s and mirage 2000s, which even without upgrades are better off than the vast majority of what pakistan flies.

    india should continue to put pressure on pakistan, irrespective of what pro-paki doofus MMS thinks
    more pressure india puts, less pakistan will be able to sustain its military spending on the back of a broken economy

    kind of strange that ejection seat works in old Mirage Planes while the same is not working in JF 17, that shows that quality of Chines product.

    BTW their is thread already about this.

    Mods please merged them.

    Yeah why not... :lol:

    Can someone provide some more details on this?

    If BLA did it then PAF would deny since it would expose and highlight the Baloch Freedom Struggle. :balochistan:

    That JF-17 pilot managed to leave the aircraft, so logically the death of the pilot should not be blamed on the maker of the aircraft.
