MUSCAT — An Omani airman has been killed in the second training accident to befall the sultanate’s air force in less than a fortnight, the defense ministry announced Monday.

“Pilot Officer Abdelmalek Ben Yacoub al-Afifi was killed when the fighter he was flying crashed on Sunday evening,” the ministry said, without giving further details.

The accident came hot on the heels of the Sept. 11 death of air force pilot Capt. Alazhar al-Shraiqi in an accident involving two Jaguar fighter jets on a training mission in the Dhofar region in the south.
