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

Last month, a trainer aircraft of the Pakistan Air Force (PAF) crashed near Mardan. A Mirage aircraft had crashed near Shorkot city of Punjab's Jhang district the week before.

According to a press release, the PAF trainer aircraft crashed on a routine training mission near Takht Bhai. The pilot safely ejected the aircraft before it fell.

The PAF said the aircraft that crashed the week before had been used for training by the air force and crashed on a routine operational training mission. The official added that no loss of life was reported in the accident.

In addition, two PAF pilots were martyred in January after a training aircraft crashed near the M M Alam Base in Mianwali. According to the air force spokesperson, the PAF FT-7 aircraft was also "on a routine operational training mission" when it crashed near Mianwali.
