Video: Indian Su-30 crashes into field & burns, both pilots survive.

An Indian Air Force Sukhoi Su-30 fighter jet has crashed during a routine training mission, the IAF said, noting that both pilots ejected before the plane hit the ground and burst into flames.

The incident happened shortly after takeoff from Tezpur air-base at 8:00 pm local time Thursday. Both pilots survived the crash and were rushed to the 155 Base Hospital. Their condition was not made public.

“The plane crashed in an open field, a kilometer ahead of Milanpur hospital. There was no loss of life and property on the ground,” Defense Ministry spokesperson Lieutenant Colonel Harshvardhan Pande said in a statement.

Video from the scene shows the plane burning in the field with fire brigade trying to bring the inferno under control.

The air force has started an investigation into the accident. The latest mishap comes two months after an Antonov An-32 transport plane crashed with 13 people on board.
