New Delhi, Jun 18: Yet another MIG-21 crashed near Chabua in Upper Assam on Thursday, Jun 18. The pilot of the fighter jet managed to eject out safely, Indian Air Force sources said.

The type-77 aircraft took off from Chabua airbase at 2:00 PM and crashed due to a technical snag.

"The pilot reported the technical error to the airbase and later jettisoned the aircraft," an IAF source was quoted as saying in a news agency report.

With this crash, the number of MIG crashes in India reported in 2009 rose to six.
