New Delhi:

A trainer aircraft of the Pakistan Army crash landed in a paddy field in the country's Punjab province on Saturday, even as the two pilots on board escaped without serious injuries. TV footage showed that a Mushshak plane was lying in the middle of a green field in Gujranwala district's Wazirabad area.

The two-seater aircraft had taken off from Rahwali Cantonment for a training mission with Captain Ahmad and an instructor.

The plane developed a technical fault flying over Dilawar Cheema near river Chenab, forcing the pilots to make a crash landing in a paddy field. The Mushshak basic trainer is a light-weight, single-engine aircraft.
