Fifth IAF Su-30 MKI Crashes, Pilots Safe
What’s the irony that this is the first post after the last one? An Indian Air Force Su-30 MKI air dominance fighter from the Lohegaon Air Force Station in Pune crashed today not far from the airfield in Pune. Both pilots ejected safely. Today’s crash happens to be the fifth crash of the type in the Indian Air Force. The previous four were in Feb 2013, Dec 2011, Nov 2009 & April 2009. More details when I get them.
