Three Turkish soldiers were killed after a CASA-type military training plane crashed in the Central Anatolian province of Isparta on Jan. 17.

Isparta Governor Şehmus Günaydın has confirmed that two pilots and one technician were killed in the crash, which occurred in a rural area of Isparta’s Yalvaç district.
Günaydın said the cause of the crash is still unknown but noted that weather conditions were foggy during the flight.

The Turkish Armed Forces issued a statement after the crash, saying the debris of the plane and the bodies of the three on board had been reached.

“On Jan. 17, 2018, a CN-235 CASA-type military transport aircraft departed at 11:03 a.m. from the Eskişehir Main Jet Base Command with two pilots and one technician in charge of planned flight training. Contact with the plane was cut at around 12:50 p.m. and a rescue operation was started. At around 14:30 p.m. we reached the debris of the plane to the north of Lake Eğirdir, as well as the bodies of our three heroic soldiers,” the statement said.
