IAF plane crashes in Mayurbhanj

Baripada: An Indian Air Force (IAF) plane crashed Tuesday in Odisha's Mayurbhanj district near the Jharhkhand border.

The pilot of the IAF plane is reportedly injured.

The incident comes a little over a month after a Microlight Virus SW-80 helicopter of the IAF crashed in Assam's Majuli island, killing two pilots Wing Commander J James and Wing Commander D Vats.

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. -PTI
