Two Indian Air Force pilots suffered serious injuries after a Mirage 2000 crashed at the Hindustan Aeronautics Limited (HAL) Airport in Yemalur near Bengaluru this morning. It was a twin-seat variant and both the pilots ejected during their take-off run. However, despite ejecting, both continue to be critical.
The Mirage 2000 trainer aircraft was on a test sortie. The aircraft reportedly couldn’t take off due to a technical snag, hit the boundry wall and caught fire.
More details are awaited.
