Czech military to resume flying L-159 planes after crash

Czech military to resume flying L-159 planes after crash

The Czech military will on Monday resume flying the L-159 subsonic aircraft after one of the planes crashed in November, killing the pilot, a military spokeswoman said Friday.

Jana Ruzickova said the investigation of the fatal crash ruled out any technical defect. But the cause of the accident has not been announced yet.

The pilot crashed into the ground when routinely training night piloting in Radovesnice, central Bohemia.

The L-159 ALCA is a one-seat, one-engine subsonic combat aircraft manufactured in the Czech Republic.

The Czech military has armed its air force with this model since 2003. In that same year, one of the planes crashed in the Jince military training ground in the central Bohemian region caused by a pilot mistake.
