A MiG-27 UPG fighter aircraft of the Indian Air Force (IAF) on a routine mission crashed in Jodhpur on Monday morning. The pilot ejected safely.

The MiG-27 was airborne from Utarlai Air Force station and crashed around 11:45 a.m., 120 km south of Jodhpur, an IAF officer said.

The pilot had reported engine problems before ejecting safely. Preliminary reports indicate no loss of property or life on ground. A court of Inquiry will investigate the cause of accident.

There have been a series of accidents involving the pilot ejected aircraft in this financial year. The last of the Russian origin jets are in the process of being phased out.

Last month, a MiG-27 which took off on a training mission from Jaisalmer crashed near Pokhran range in Rajasthan. In September 2018, another MiG-27 crashed in an open area in Deolia Kalan village in Jodhpur district. The pilots had ejected safely in both the instances.
