According to a newspaper report, the aircraft was occupied by a sole cadet pilot. The aircraft after experiencing technical problem made a forced landing in an agricultural field in Kalinger near Malyano Kalay on the outskirts of Risalpur.

A PAF board of inquiry has been formed to determine cause of this incident.

Yes, cadet pilot was flying it solo. There is a video on social media made by some locals soon after the aircraft crash landed where the cadet pilot is seen talking to someone and saying 'jee mein theek hun'. Glad that he is safe.
