A Pakistani Air Force (PAF) aircraft crashed in Pindigheb, Attock, during routine training on Tuesday morning. The pilot ejected safely and no fatalities were reported, the air force said in a statement.

PAF said that a board of inquiry has been ordered to investigate the incident and probe the cause of the crash.

Tuesday’s crash is the PAF’s fifth military aircraft to crash this year. A military aircraft – PAF FT-7 – on a training mission crashed in Mianwali in January this year, killing the flying officer and the squadron leader. A month later, another PAF trainer aircraft crashed in Mardan district of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa in February. In the same month, a PAF mirage aircraft crashed near the Lahore-Multan motorway. Pilots in both cases ejected safely.

A PAF F-16 aircraft crashed in Islamabad during the routine rehearsals for the air parade of 23 March, the Pakistan Resolution Day, leaving the wing commander Nauman Akram dead.
