MiG 27 fighter jet crashes in Rajasthan’s Sirohi

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.
