A MIG-21 fighter aircraft of the Indian Air Force has crashed at Nal near Bikaner in Rajasthan.
24-year-old Flying Officer Suraj Pillai was on training exercise when his MiG crashed into the ground resulting in the death of the pilot. Flying Officer Suraj Pillai was recently commissioned into the Indian Air Force.
Nal is being used by the IAF as its forward base in the area. This is the 2nd crash of the very old Indian MiG-21 fighter jet this year. In February, another MIG-21 has crashed due to the suspected engine snag.
