The pilot was also killed when an Indian Air Force MiG-21 crashed near Jaisalmer in Rajasthan.

According to Indian media, Jaisalmer SP Ajay Singh said that the plane crashed in the area of ​​Desert National Park within the limits of Sam police station.

He said that the police had reached the spot while the pilot was also killed on the spot who was identified as Wing Commander Harshit Sinha.

The Air Force’s official Twitter handle said the MiG-21, which was on a training flight, crashed at about 8:30 last night.

Several MiG-21 crashes have been reported in India this year, and the aircraft has been dubbed a “flying coffin” because of the high number of crashes.

The government told parliament in May 2012 that between 1971 and April 2012, 482 MiGs crashed, killing 171 pilots, 39 civilians, eight service personnel and one air crew.

The Indian government said the cause of the accident was “human error and technical glitches”.
