A training aircraft of the Air Force crashed in a densely populated area of Malang, East Java, on Wednesday morning injuring three people.

Antara news agency reports that the aircraft, a Brazilian-made Super Tucano, crashed on Jl. LA Sucipto in Blimbing in Malang at around 10:40 a.m.

A witness identified as Ananda, whose house is near the scene, said the aircraft was circling in the air before taking a nosedive.

The aircraft, flying from Abdul Rahman Saleh Air Force base in Malang, crashed not far from the air base.
