Two pilots are safe after ejecting from an Air Force training plane on Tuesday, before it crashed in a field on the north side of San Antonio, a report said.

The pilots survived the bailout of the T-6 Texan II training aircraft and the injuries incurred, The Houston Chronicle.

The commander of the 12th Flying Training Wing, suspended from the training flights at Joint Base San Antonio-Randolph, said the report.

The crash was about 30 miles from the base in the vicinity of Rolling Oaks Mall, Air Education and Training Command officials told Military.com.

“Clearly, this is a serious accident, so we should follow the protocol established by the air force,” Randy Martin, the wing, the spokesman, told the Chronicle.

The cause of the crash was not immediately known, but an air force investigation team was on the ground.

The T-6A is used to train instructor pilots, according to the paper.

There were no civilian casualties Military.com reported.
