IAF aircraft crashes in Telangana today, 2 pilots dead

A Pilatus PC 7 Mk II aircraft met with an accident on Monday morning during a routine training sortie from AFA, Hyderabad, the Indian Air Force said in a tweet on the X platform. “It is with deep regret that the IAF confirms both pilots onboard the aircraft sustained fatal injuries. No damage to any civil life or property has been reported,” IAF said.

The IAF said that a Court of Inquiry has been ordered to ascertain the cause of the accident.


IAF’s aircraft crash incidences seem to have increased in the recent past. In June this year, IAF’s Kiran trainer aircraft crashed in an open field in Karnataka’s Chamrajnagar but the pilot sustained minor injuries.

In May an Indian Air Force MiG-21 fighter aircraft crashed near Hanumangarh in Rajasthan.

In March, an aircraft crashed with two trainee pilots on board, in the Balaghat district of Madhya Pradesh. The crash led to the death of a man.
