A Nigerian Air Force’s FT-7NI trainer aircraft was involved in a crash on Friday evening, during a routine exercise in Makurdi, the capital of Benue State.
This was verified in a statement released on Friday by Air Commodore Edward Gabkwet, the NAF’s director of public relations and information.
Two of the aircraft’s pilots, he claimed, made it out alive and were being monitored in a military facility.
He said: “Luckily, the two pilots on board survived the crash after successfully ejecting from the aircraft. Additionally, there was no loss of lives or damage to any property around the area of impact.
“Both pilots are currently under observation at NAF Base Hospital, Makurdi. Meanwhile, the Chief of Air Staff, Air Vice Marshal Hasan Abubakar, has constituted a Board of Inquiry to determine the immediate and remote causes of the crash.”
