An Indian Air Force’s jet fighter Jaguar aircraft reportedly caught fire during take-off in Haryana’s Ambala Air Force Station on Tuesday.
The pilot of the aircraft made a narrow escape. He was unhurt as he ejected himself quickly from the aircraft.
A court of inquiry has been ordered by the Air Force authorities.
Earlier this week, a MiG-21 fighter jet crashed in the western state of Rajasthan when the combat aircraft was on a routine sortie. The pilot and the co-pilot managed to eject safely.
