The deceased pilot has been identified as Squadron Leader Naruephol Lertkuson, who was the instructor. The survivor is Flying Officer Theerawat Khoonkhunthod, who is a trainee.

 

Theerawat has reportedly sustained minor injuries.

 

 

RTAF spokesperson Air Marshal Phongsak Semachai said an investigation had been launched into the cause of the crash, adding the two-seater, Czech-made L-39 was making a return trip to the airfield of Wing 41, to which both officers were assigned.

What does “when the altitude is too low” mean?

 

i wonder if he ejected at all? The trainees are suppose to be making the mistakes not the instructors...

 

interested to hear their final conversation....a critical mistake was made somewhere in the final minutes
