A Mirage training jet of Pakistan Air Force crashed today after apparently developing some technical problems during a routine mission in the Punjab province. The French-made aircraft crashed in the Athara Hazari area of Jhang district. “The pilot safely ejected the aircraft and there was no loss to life or property on ground,” a Pakistan Air Force (PAF) spokesperson said.  No reason was given for the cause of the crash.PAF has suffered several crashes of its aircraft during training in the past.

A Mirage fighter jet of PAF crashed in October while on a routine training flight, killing the pilot. In September, a PAF fighter jet had crashed and its pilot killed in the country’s northwestern Khyber agency bordering Afghanistan. A double-seat version of F-7PG PAF fighter jet, which was on a routine training mission, caught fire and crashed near Mastung district of Balochistan province in 2015.
