Military jet crashes in Sask., pilots eject safely


Updated Fri. Apr. 18 2008 8:49 PM ET

The Canadian Press

Moose Jaw, Sask. -- Two pilots in a military training jet have safely ejected before their aircraft crashed at a base in Saskatchewan.

A spokeswoman for 15 Wing Moose Jaw said in a news release the CT-155 Hawk aircraft crashed about 4 p.m. local time.

The crash happened within the base's perimeter during a routine training mission.

Capt. Genevieve Mitchell says both pilots safely ejected.

The Hawk is used for advanced jet pilot training under the NATO Flight Training in Canada program at the base, which trains pilots from the United Kingdom, Denmark, Italy, Hungary and Singapore as well as Canada.

A pilot and student both ejected from a Hawk on May 14, 2004 when a seagull was sucked into the jet trainer's engine.

The student was unhurt but the instructor suffered a broken femur.

The crew had been doing `touch-and-go' landings at the time.

The plane crashed into a farmer's field.

At that time, it was believed to be the only ejection from a Hawk jet in the approximately eight years they've been used for training at 15 Wing.

The information regarding injuries may be inaccurate. Both pilots are alive and well though. More to follow once confirmation is received.

The info on injuries is about the 2004 crash.

Plane Crash at 15 Wing Moose Jaw

Saturday, 19 April 2008

"Two injured, but no-one was killed, when a CT 155 Hawk crashed during a routine training flight at 15 Wing Moose Jaw yesterday afternoon.
Base officials says both pilots, Second-Lieutenant Rock Veilleux with the Canadian Air Force and Major Frank Wagener with the German Air Force, managed to eject safely. They are in Moose Jaw hospital with non-life threatening injuries.

A flight safety team will be on sight today to investigate the acccident. The remaining fleet of CT-155 Hawks have been grounded until the investigation determines there is no risk in flying the planes.

The crash took place within the 15 Wing Moose Jaw perimeter. 15 Wing Moose Jaw is the site of the Nato Flying Training in Canada operated cooperatively by the Government of Canada and Bombardier. They offer basic and advanced pilot training and fighter pilot lead-in training to NATO and other allied countries. "

That instructor was as cool as computer. "Where ejecting to the north." Obviously the training paid off, as it went down pretty good.

The summary of the investigation is available online at :

You can see from the first picture on the left that they were damn low when they punched out.
