Two people on a training flight were killed when their glider plane crashed in Indonesia’s Yogyakarta province on Thursday, a military academy official said.

‘Two people were killed in the accident. One is the instructor and the other is the student,’ Air Force Academy governor Ida Bagus Putu Dunia said.

‘The glider plane crashed on land which is still part of the academy in Sleman district. We are still unsure of the cause of the accident,’ Dunia said.

In February, five people on a test flight were killed in Bintan island when their small plane crashed having changed one of its engines.

Five police on a mission to help flood victims in eastern Indonesia were killed in October when their plane crashed into a tree during an emergency landing.
