A MiG-27 aircraft of Indian Air Force (IAF) crashed into a building in Rajasthan's Jodhpur today. Both pilots ejected safely.
At least two people have been injured. The crash occurred near Jodhpur airbase while the fighter jet was on a routine sortie. IAF has ordered a court of inquiry into the crash incident, reported news agency ANI.
MiG 27 is one of the oldest aircraft of Indian Air Force and will be phased out



soon.
Air Chief Marshal Arup Raha had earlier said that all the MIG-27 fighter jets, which have not been upgraded, will be phased out in the next couple of years after the introduction of Rafale and Tejas.
"Mig-27, specially the ones which have not been upgraded, are going to be retired from service. They have served well for the country. We have plans to retire them in the next 2-3 years time," he told reporters in November last year.
