Indian Air Force MiG-21 Bison crash

Today, 5 January 2020, the Bharatiya Vayu Sena (IAF, Indian Air Force) lost a MiG-21 Bison of 23sq Panthers (part of 35 Wing), due to a technical malfunction. The aircraft crashed shortly after take-off from Suratgarh Air Force Station (state of Rajasthan).

Despite the tough conditions during the night time training sortie, the pilot managed to steer the Soviet era fighter away from buildings and ejected once he was sure the Migoyan Gurevich would not cause any more harm. At that point he decided to eject and landed safely.
