The crash happened en route around 10 a.m. and involved two T-38C Talon trainer planes, officials said in a Facebook post.

One of the surviving pilots was taken to Val Verde Regional Medical Center, where they were treated and released. The second pilot is in critical condition and has been evacuated by air to Brooke Army Medical Center, according to the post.
