The country's Ministry of Defense said the plane had been on a training flight when the accident happened. The pilot was reported to have ejected from the doomed aircraft- a Soviet Sukhoi SU-22 fighter/ground attack jet. Yemen has 30 SU-22 warplanes in its air force, out of a total of 79 active aircraft.
