An aircraft of Pakistan Air Force (PAF) crashed in northwest Pakistan on Thursday, the PAF said.
"Both pilots of the aircraft ejected safely. No loss of civilian life or property occurred on ground," a PAF statement said.
The T-37 aircraft, while on a routine training mission, crashed approximately at Sakha Kot, a town 55 Kms North of Risalpur, a major PAF base.
"The crash apparently occurred due to technical malfunction," the statement said.
A board of inquiry has been ordered by Air Headquarters to determine the cause of accident.
It is the second crash of similar aircraft in less than a month.
Another T-37 aircraft of PAF crashed in northwest on June 12, killing the pilot.
