    PAF jet crashes while on training mission near Sargodha


    A Pakistan Air Force (PAF) jet crashed near Sargodha while on a training mission on Thursday, a press release issued by PAF said.

    "PAF reports with regret that an F7-PG aircraft crashed near Sargodha while on a training mission. Search and rescue operation is in progress," the statement added.

    A spokesman for the air force told DawnNews it was being ascertained whether the lone pilot flying the aircraft has survived.

    F7-PGs were first inducted in the PAF in 2002 as a replacement for the F-6, which were then decommissioned. The trainer FT-7PGs came later. The PAF had previously operated F-7Ps.

    About nine or 10 F7-PGs/FT-7PGs have been lost during their 15 years in service. The PAF has more than 50 of the Chinese-made aircraft in its fleet.

    The losses of F7-PGs/FT-7PGs in air crashes are within normal limits, aviation experts claim.

    A little over a week ago, a senior PAF officer had embraced martyrdom when his aircraft crashed near Mianwali while on a routine operational flight.

    So another one bites the dust. This is serious issue now. PAF has the worst crash rate in the last few years as compared to other Air forces. Just saying that the planes we are crashing are old ones (F7s, mirages) is not the answer. We really should review our daily operations and usage of these planes. I think our maintenance department is doing a very poor job. May be its very generalized statement but looking at the crashes every second week, one has to introspect fast - very fast.

    PAF jet crashes near Sargodha

    A Pakistan Air Force (PAF) F-7 PG jet crashed near Sargodha on Thursday, according to PAF spokesperson.

    One PAF official, identified as Lieutenant Bilal, suffered a leg fracture as a result of the incident.

    The jet was on a training mission, the spokesperson remarked, adding that rescue operation is under way.

    According to details, the pilot had flown the jet from PAF Base Samungli, located near Quetta, to participate in training exercise in Sargodha, where the incident occurred.

    A board of inquiry has been ordered by Air Headquarters to determine the cause of the accident.

    On May 25, a PAF jet while on a routine operational training mission crashed near Mianwali, informed a PAF spokesperson.

    The pilot of F-7 PG aircraft ejected safely and no loss of civilian life and property has been reported on ground, the spokesperson added.

    Yes its an issue everytime a aircraft crashes, having said that there is no need to hit the panic button as some posters here have.

    research and development and maintenance expense is compromised by granting high pension and salary to officers of armed forces to maintain their luxurious life

    Don't know if this tweet is true, but if it is this would be the fourth PAF fighter jet crash in 2017.
