In December, two pilots embraced martyrdom after a Pakistan Army aviation helicopter crashed at Siachen in Gilgit-Baltistan’s (GB) Ghanche district. The ISPR had not given a reason for the accident.

Two similar aircraft crashes were reported in August as well. However, no loss of life was reported in either of the incidents.

The first incident had taken place on August 6 near Attock when a Pakistan Air Force (PAF) fighter trainer aircraft had crashed during a routine training mission. According to a statement issued by a PAF spokesperson at the time, both the pilots had ejected from the jet successfully.
