At approximately 7:40 p.m. local time on Tuesday, an Air Force T-38 Talon crashed near Laughlin Air Force Base in Del Rio, Texas. One crew member died in the crash and the other is currently hospitalized. The Air Force has yet to reveal the second crew member’s identity or condition.

Details regarding this most recent crash remain limited, but the incident itself begs some hard questions about the Air Force’s training advanced jet training program. Tuesday’s crash marks the fifth time an Air Force T-38 Talon has crashed in training in just the past twelve months. In fact, over the past year, the T-38 platform alone accounts for half of all Air Force crashes. The most recent T-38 crash occurred in September when another trainer jet veered off the runway at Sheppard Air Force Base in Texas. Both crew members ejected from the aircraft and were eventually released back to full duty.

In August, yet another Talon, this time from the 71st Flying Training Wing at Vance Air Force Base in Oklahoma, went down. The pilot was able to safely eject in that instance, as well.

In May of this year, a T-38 out of Columbus Air Force Base crashed. Both pilots were able to eject.
