Air Force Maj. Andy Roake, a spokesman for Randolph Air Force Base in San Antonio, said the crash of the T-6 Texan trainer II, a small propeller plane, occurred south of the city shortly after 4:30 p.m. local time.

The pilot and co-pilot both suffered cuts and bruises, and one of the men broke an ankle. No one on the ground was injured. The single-engine plane was assigned to the 177th Flying Training Squadron from the base, Roake said.

"Aboard each aircraft were two pilots and three of them managed to eject and safely parachute to the ground while the third pilot, Captain Ompatile Sianang sustained 2nd degree burns and later died at Bokamoso hospital."
This is now contradicted by further reports in the media. It now gives the other two crew as sustaining 22nd degree burns.
Further feedback suggests that Captain Sianang sustained injuries having experienced parachute problems following ejection. It is reported that his parachute caught on the tail of the other aircraft.
