Indian Air Force Third Crashed Su-30MKI

The two-person crew of an Indian air force Sukhoi Su-30MKI ejected
safely before the strike aircraft crashed near Pune in western India on
13 December.


Sources have said initial indications point to a failure involving
the aircraft’s fly-by-wire flight control system. The air force has
established a court of inquiry to investigate the factors behind the
accident.


The mishap is the third crash to have involved the Su-30MKI in Indian
service since 2009. All of the aircraft lost had been assembled locally
by Hindustan Aeronautics.
