Military Jet Crash Kills One In Myanmar 

A F-7 fighter jet on a training flight crashed on Tuesday in Central Myanmar, killing the only pilot onboard, according Deputy Director General of the Department of Civil Aviation, Ye Htet Aung.

The Chinese-made F-7 crashed near Taungoo Air Base in Myanmar’s Bago Region at 10:36 am, the official said.

Pilot Arkar Win died in the crash, he added.

Police told AFP that the single-seater F-7 jet fighter went down around 10am on Tuesday morning while a military source said the pilot, Major Arkar Win, was in his mid-30s.

In June 2017, a military Y-8 transporter crashed into the Andaman Sea off the coast of southern Myanmar, killing all 122 people on board.
