Based on the official tweet by the U.S. Air Force yesterday, the clash was said to be the seventh non-combat clash of their jet within this year against the total seven that occurred last year.
The information revealed that one crew member sustained minor injury and was airlifted to a local hospital. The condition of the second member is yet to be made known according to the report.
The first to respond to the scene after the incident was the White Sands Range Directorate of Emergency Services based on the report dropped. The officials said that more information on the second aircrew member will be released when it is available, as the information reads “this is a developing story, check back for update”.

The A-29 super Tucano aircraft is a low tech-high tech combo, chosen by the Air Force for the training flight of the “light attack experiment”. It is an aircraft manufactured by a U.S. based aircraft manufacturing company and released to the Air Force.
