Neither of the two people aboard was injured when the T-53 Kadet 2 crashed on Monday. Their names haven't been released. 

Air Force spokeswoman Bekah Clark says one person was a cadet but she didn't know whether the other person was a cadet or an instructor. Clark didn't know whether training flights had been canceled while the crash is investigated or how badly the plane and the hangar were damaged.

The single-engine, low-wing T-53 is the Air Force version of the Cirrus SR20. 

The academy acquired 25 of the aircraft last year for about $244,000 each.
