An Air Force training aircraft crashed Tuesday afternoon during a training flight in San Antonio, Texas.

According to the San Antonio Fire Department, the Air Force T-6A Texan went down in northeast Bexar County near Rolling Oaks Mall and Veterans Memorial High School.

Joint Base San Antonio Randolph Air Force Base public affairs say the aircraft was a pilot instructor training plane designed to teach instructors, which is why two pilots were involved in a one-plane incident.

The San Antonio Fire Department said both pilots survived and only one aircraft was involved in the accident, according to KENS5.

Joint Base San Antonio-Randolph confirmed that the T-6 was assigned to the 12th Flying Training Wing at the base, saying both crew members only “sustained minor injuries” and ejected safely.

The two crew members were taken to the BSA-Randolph clinic as a precaution.
