The MiG 27 UPG aircraft, which was on a “routine mission” crashed in Godana near Sheoganj in Sirohi, about 180 km away from Jodhpur.
The MiG-27 is a Soviet era ground-attack aircraft that India bought in the early 1980s. It flew strike missions in the Kargil War in 1999, hitting hard targets in the mountains.
Further details are awaited.
