A military training aircraft crashed about 1:50 p.m. CST Friday, about 15 kilometres south of 15 Wing Moose Jaw.

The two pilots ejected safely.

They were flying a CT 156 Harvard II aircraft, a plane used for training.

Capt. Thomas Edelson, from CFB Moose Jaw, told CBC News that one of the pilots determined it was not safe to land and that a "controlled ejection" was made.

"This is actually a very good outcome," Edelson said. "Both people got out of the plane. You can buy more planes, but you can't buy more people."

Edelson said the plane ended up in a field. The site is being secured as part of the investigation.
