Two pilots, including a trainee from Japan, died when a military training jet crashed near Montgomery Regional Airport in Alabama on Friday, officials said.

According to the country's air force, training was being conducted on the T-38 model aircraft in the state of Alabama. After a short flight, communication with the control room was cut off. 

The T-38 trainer Nobuo Kishi was based out of the 14th Flying Training Wing at Columbus Air Force Base in Mississippi, the U.S. Air Force said in a statement. Taggart said he believed the aircraft was flying to a base in Tallahassee, Florida.

US Air Force described the student airman as a 24-year-old from Japan. The instructor, he said, was a 25-year-old Air Force lieutenant.

The US Air Force, meanwhile, has expressed deep sorrow over the deaths of two pilots in the crash, citing irreparable damage. Authorities are working to determine the cause of the crash.
