Jordan military plane crash kills two pilots

A Jordanian air force plane on a training flight crashed on Thursday due to a technical failure, killing the pilot and a trainee, an official in the armed forces' general command said in a statement.

"At 6:55 am (0355 GMT) on Thursday morning one of the training planes, a Firefly, at the King Hussein air force college (in Mafraq, in northern Jordan), crashed in a training area to the west of the college after a technical failure during a routine training flight," the statement said.

The source added that the pilot and the trainee on board both died in the accident.

The last incident of this kind took place in January 2012, when a Jordanian military pilot was killed after his aircraft crashed on a training flight due to a technical failure.
