IAF plane crashes in Mayurbhunj, Odisha
NEW DELHI: An Indian Air Force (IAF) Hawk advanced trainer jet crashed Tuesday in Odisha's Mayurbhanj district near the Jharkhand border.
The trainee pilot helming the plane ejected himself safely but received some injuries. The aircraft had taken off on a routine training sortie from Kikunda Air Force station in Kharagpur. An investigation has been ordered into the accident.
The in dent comes a little over a month after a Microlight Vir s SW-80 helicopter of the IAF crashed in Assam's Majuli island, killing two pilots Wing Commander J James and Wing Commander D Vats.
就在1个多月之前，印度空军一架Vir s SW-80超轻型直升机在阿萨姆邦马久利岛坠毁，两名飞行员丧生，分别是空军中校J詹姆士和空军中校D瓦特斯。
In the Assam crash, the pilots attempted an emergency landing but the aircraft crashed in a sand bar in the northern part of the district and went up in flames, Tezpur-based defence spokesperson Lt. Col. Harshvardhan Pande told PTI.

Modi has starved Armed Forces of funds and dest yed them. Only uses Armed Forces for photo ops and takes their credit.

Over the years, the IAF has a depleted fleet and all credits to the previous go nments, most of them ruled by Congress & UPA.... Now, Modiji is trying to fill them as early as possible... But Congress in poking its nose again in these matters as they lost their kickbacks..
