Islamabad, March 5 (DPA) Two Pakistan Air Force pilots were killed Thursday when their Mushshak plane crashed in the eastern province of Punjab, the military said.
The propeller-driven aircraft was on a routine flight when it went down near the garrison town of Rawalpindi, apparently because of a mechanical failure. The crash did not cause damage on the ground.
The Mushshak is the air force’s primary training aircraft and is not equipped with ejectable seats.
An inquiry was launched to ascertain the cause of the crash.
