An Indian Air Force (IAF) power hand-glider made a 'precautionary landing' in Assam's Barpeta district on Saturday while it was flying from Hasimara in North Bengal to Guwahati.

IAF sources here said "inclement weather" forced the pilots to land the glider on the banks of the Brahmaputra near Bohori.

There was no injury to the two IAF personnel in the glider, they said adding it will later fly to Guwahati.
