An Indian Air Force MiG fighter jet crashed on Tuesday in Rajasthan, killing its pilot.
Police said the Russian-designed aircraft took off from a military base in the frontier district of Barmer and crashed in a field without giving its trainee pilot a chance to eject to safety.
The crash comes three days after two of the most experienced military pilots died when their plane crashed during aerobatics over Bangalore.
