Yemen army jet
crashes, pilot killed

SANAA - A military training jet crashed in south Yemen on Wednesday, killing its pilot, an army officer told AFP.

 

The accident took place as the Czech-made L-39 aircraft was landing at an airbase in Taez, 180 kilometers south of the capital, the officer said.

 

An investigation has been launched into the incident, he added.

 

Impoverished Yemen's military aircraft, many of them Soviet-made, are ageing and often encounter problems.
