Pakistan: Chengdu FT-7PG plane crash
National Air Force trainer, Paf. Two victims
A Chengdu FT-7PG Pakistan Air Force trainer airplane, Paf, crashed today as it was landing at the Peshawar Airport Air Base, Pakistan. On board two soldiers, a captain and a pilot officer, both died. A meager release of the same air force unveiled it, which also informs that the incident occurred on the return from a routine operational training mission. It seems that the airplane was enclosed in flames and completely destroyed, and it will be the investigation just opened by the military authorities to determine the causes.
The F7-PGs were introduced for the first time in the PAF in 2002 to replace the F-6, then fallen into disuse. Later, the FT-7PG trainer variants were also acquired.
