Members from the base's fire and safety units from the 12th Flying Training Wing responded to the incident alongside and local responders, the announcement said.
Two parachutes were seen deploying from the aircraft, indicating the airmen ejected prior to the crash, Col. Dedra Witham, AETC spokeswoman, told reporters during the Air Force Association Air, Space and Cyber conference.
The Air Force is investigating the incident, Witham said.
Two pilots from 80th Flying Training Wing ejected safely in that incident and were taken for evaluation, officials from Sheppard said in a statement. Both pilots were deemed stable. The crash remains under investigation.
Including the two recent trainer crashes, the Air Force has lost nine aircraft in non-combat training accidents this year, including an HH-60 Pave Hawk helicopter, two other T-38 Talon trainers, a WC-130 Hurricane Hunter, two F-16 Fighting Falcons -- one from the Thunderbirds demonstration team -- and a Kadena-based F-15 Eagle.

Additionally, an A-29 Super Tucano crashed at Holloman Air Force Base, New Mexico, in June as part of the Air Force's Light Attack Experiment.
Several of the accidents involved fatalities.
For example, Air Force Global Strike Command grounded the entire B-1B Lancer fleet for nearly two weeks in June over safety concerns related to the aircraft's ejection seats. More recently, an F-35A Joint Strike Fighter at Eglin Air Force Base, Florida, suffered a ground mishap that caused its nose gear to collapse following an in-flight emergency.
