An Indian Air Force plane crashed during a combat training mission at an airbase in central India Wednesday.

Group Captain A Gupta died in the tragic accident, the Indian Air Force confirmed in a statement.

The pilot was flying a MiG-21 Bison aircraft which crashed while taking off, it has been reported.

“IAF expresses deep condolences and stands firmly with the family members,” the Indian force said.

It has even ordered a Court of Inquiry to determine the cause of the accident.

On August 7, 2020 14 people were killed and 15 others were seriously injured when an Indian passenger jet skidded off the runway after landing in heavy rain, officials said.

Air India Express said more than 190 passengers and crew were onboard the plane, which left from Dubai and landed at Kozhikode airport in the southern state of Kerala.

Television pictures showed part of the fuselage of the jet ripped apart, although there was no sign of any fire.
