Lieutenant Mai Elny Sefrina Jalaludin, a pilot-in-training of
the Royal Malaysian Air Force, was killed Tuesday when her Pilatus
PC-7 trainer crashed about 12:20PM, an hour into its flight from
the RMAF College in Alor Setar.
The crash that killed Ms. Jalaludin, 23, did no appreciable
damage on the ground, although some rubber trees on a plantation
were destroyed. At least one worker got a scare, as the airplane
passed within 50 meters of his position.
A postcrash fire engulfed much of the wreckage and dozens more
trees, as the debris fiels was about 100 feet in diameter, reports
Lieutenant Jalaludin was one of a select group of pioneering
women in flight training in the RMAF.
The plantation is located near Kampung Lembah Keriang in Sintok
near Jitra, Kedah.
An investigation into the crash is underway.
