An Indian Air Force MiG-21 aircraft crashed in Gwaliyar on Wednesday, according to the Indian news agency ANI.
Both the pilots of the MiG-21 trainer aircraft including a group captain and a squadron leader managed to eject safely in the crash which took place in the state of Madhya Pradesh, Indian news agency reported.
The aircraft, which was on a routine mission, crashed around 10:30 am Indian time, Inspector General of Police, D.P Gupta told PTI.
An IAF rescue team soon reached the spot with a helicopter and took the two pilots along with it after providing them first-aid, he said.
Crashes involving fighter jet planes are not uncommon in India, which is in the midst of upgrading its Soviet-era military hardware.
Most of the accidents involve the MiGs that India bought decades ago from the Soviet Union, earning it the unflattering flying coffin.
Last July, the pilot of a MiG-21 jet died after the fighter jet crashed in northern Himachal Pradesh state.
Since 2016, the Indian Air Force has lost 27 fighter jet aircraft in crashes.
