A People’s Liberation Army Air Force jet, a double-seat Su-27 UBK fighter, according to Global Times, crashed in Rongcheng, Shandong province yesterday afternoon, killing both pilots.
GT reports that the pilots apparently had ejected, making it “unclear why they did not survive.”
Initial photos showing the crashed aircraft began appearing on microblogs on Sunday afternoon. China Central Television later reported the pilots’ deaths in a Weibo account.
