Chinese navy pilots survive fighter jet crash

BEIJING, Dec. 17 (UPI) -- Two Chinese navy pilots survived a military aircraft crash, after a People's Liberation Army Jian-10 fighter tumbled during a night training exercise.

The aircraft spun out of control because of a malfunction owing to "frequent nighttime training," Chinese online news site Sina.com reported.


According to Chinese press, a Jian-10 fighter jet was in operation before 5:30 p.m. Friday, local time, when it crashed in Zhejiang Province on China's east coast, near the city Taizhou.

Quoting a Chinese navy spokesman, state news agency Xinhua reported the two pilots managed to parachute safely after the plane had crashed. No other casualties were reported.

The fighter jet was part of China's East Sea Fleet Air Force, and Chinese press reported a Russian engine fitted to the aircraft had created problems, and most likely because of frequent nighttime flying
