New Delhi, March 31: A MiG-27 fighter jet of the Indian Air Force (IAF), which was on a routine mission from Jodhpur, crashed in a village in Sirohi, Rajasthan, on Sunday.
“Today (Sunday) morning, a MiG 27 UPG aircraft on a routine mission from Jodhpur crashed in Godana village. The pilot ejected safely,” the Defence official added.
A court of inquiry has been ordered to investigate the cause of the accident.
Preliminary reports indicate no loss of property or life on ground.
The MiG-27 is a Soviet era ground-attack aircraft that India bought in the early 1980s.
Last month, another MiG-27 fighter jet crashed in Rajasthan’s Jaisalmer. The fighter jet crashed during a training mission and the pilot ejected safely above the Pokhran range.
