Islamabad: A Pakistan Air Force jet
crashed during a training mission in Punjab province Wednesday, injuring a woman trainee pilot and an instructor in the third such mishap in three months.

The FT-7 jet was on a routine training mission when it
crashed near the Mianwali airbase in Punjab shortly after
take-off, the officials told the media.

The woman trainee pilot and the instructor were injured
in the incident, they said.

Despite sustaining injuries, the trainee pilot and the
instructor were safe, the officials said.

This was the third air force jet to crash in training in
three months.

Two pilots were killed in the other accidents and a
helicopter crash in June last year killed four military
personnel.

The FT-7 jet is a variant of the Chengdu J-7 aircraft
made by China.

The Pakistan Air Force has a large fleet of Chinese
aircraft and recently inducted the JF-17 Thunder, a combat jet
jointly developed by China and Pakistan.
