The accident did not cause any loss of life or property on the ground.

A board of inquiry has been formed to determine the cause of crash.

Respectfully Abbas I think we should avoid the serial numbers of the aircraft on an open forum. I would suggest that we should not identify the aircraft type as well unless it is already in the public domain or the information is officially released by PAF. Just my suggestion.

Yeah but it’s the internet and the planes fly through the public airspace where they can be photographed and recorded by the public.

Plus most military aircraft worldwide now have ADS-B transceivers and can be tracked on websites like Flightradar24
