Pakistan fighter jet crashes, pilot killed

Islamabad: A Pakistan Air Force (PAF) fighter jet crash landed in Khyber Agency, killing the pilot, media reported on Saturday.
 
"The pilot of the aircraft Omer Shazad sustained fatal injuries," The Express Tribune cited military's statement. The aircraft was on a routine operational training mission.
 
"No loss of civilian life and property has been reported on ground," the statement added.
 
Though officials claim the aircraft crashed due to a technical fault, a board of inquiry has been ordered by Air Headquarters to determine the cause of the accident.
 
In 2015, a PAF fighter jet F7-PG crashed near Mastung during what officials described as a routine training operation.
