AMMAN — A training plane affiliated with the Royal Jordanian Air Force (RJAF) experienced a malfunction while landing and hit the ground, a military source at the Jordan Armed Forces — Arab Army (JAF) announced on Tuesday.

The aircraft was landing in an air base when it crashed, the source said, adding that the pilots survived the accident, according to a JAF statement.

In early February, a Public Security Department pilot was killed and his co-pilot was injured when their helicopter crashed while they were carrying out a night training mission near Zai, Salt. In mid-January, an RJAF aircraft crashed during a regular training mission due to a technical failure.

In a statement carried by the Jordan News Agency, Petra, at the time, a JAF official said the two pilots ejected and parachuted safely.
