Indian Air Force' MiG-21 crashes near Gwalior airbase in Madhya Pradesh
According to media reports, both the IAF pilots, a group captain and a squadron leader, managed to eject safely during the MiG-21 trainer aircraft crash.
The aircraft was on a routine training mission from Gwalior Airbase when it crashed near the airfield at around 10 AM.
The aircraft caught fire right after the crash.
The Indian authorities have launched an inquiry into the incident.
More than 170 Air Force pilots have died in accidents in the past three decades, mostly in incidents involving Soviet-era MiGs — unflatteringly dubbed “flying coffins”.
