An Indian Air Force MiG-27 fighter jet crashed near the western state of Rajasthan's Jodhpur city yesterday, a senior defence official said. Though two pilots ejected safely, three people on the ground were injured and a building near the crash site was damaged, the official said on condition of anonymity. The fighter jet was old and the incident happened as soon as it took off on a training flight from the Jodhpur air base, the official said. The Indian Air Force has ordered a court of inquiry into the incident, he added.
