    PAF plane crashes near Gujrat, killing both pilots

    LAHORE: A Pakistan Air Force (PAF) aircraft on a training mission crashed in Gujrat district of Punjab Tuesday evening, killing both the crew members on board.

    According to the Inter-Services Public Relations (ISPR), the aircraft was on a training flight and both the crew members, instructor pilot Major Azhar and trainee pilot Captain Ahmed lost their lives in the crash.

    The crash is the latest deadly accident to hit Pakistan's military.

    In November last year, PAF suffered the loss of its first female pilot, when her training flight crashed near Mianwali.

    A military helicopter carrying diplomats to inspect a tourism project crashed in May 2015, killing seven people, including the ambassadors of Norway and Philippines.

    While In August 2015, another military helicopter being used as an air ambulance crashed near the northern district of Mansehra, killing 12 people.

    Sounds like it was a super mushak or a K-8?

    It was a Mashak. Sad loss of life. But it will be a good idea to do a breathalyzer test on instructors before these training flights. Some of them do get drunk and then go flying. I personally knew an F-16 pilot who had plenty of Alcohol in his system before some of his flights of Pakistan's prime fighter jet.

    So 1 experience is a guide line for all? We should wait for the official reasoning.
