A newly released video shows the shocking moment of a Pakistan Air Force (PAF) F-16 aircraft crash near Shakarparian in Islamabad on Wednesday morning.

An F-16A MLU fighter aircraft of the Pakistan Air Force, 38 Wing, 9 Sqn “Griffins”, crashed near Shakarparian, Islamabad, during rehearsals for the March 23 parade.

According to a PAF spokesman, Wing Commander Noman Akram embraced martyrdom in the incident.

Rescue teams have been dispatched towards the site of the crash, he said.

A board of inquiry has been ordered by Air Headquarters to determine the cause of the accident, the statement said.

“Pakistan Air Force reports with regret that a PAF F-16 aircraft crashed near Shakarparian, Islamabad during the rehearsals of 23rd March parade,” said the statement.

Last month, a PAF trainer aircraft crashed on February 12 during a routine training mission near Takht Bhai in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa’s Mardan district. It was the third PAF training aircraft to have crashed while on a routine training mission in less than two months.
