Srinagar: An Indian Air Force (IAF) MiG-21 fighter jet crash landed at the Srinagar Airport on Tuesday. The runway was damaged because of the incident and as a result all the flight operations were stopped.

The pilots, however, did not suffer any injuries and safely ejected out of the aircraft.

"The fighter jet made an emergency landing at the Srinagar Airport after the pilot noticed a technical snag in the plane. The tyres of the jet were badly burnt due to the emergency landing but timely action saved the plane," airport sources in Srinagar were quoted as saying by the Press Trust of India.

Earlier in June, three people were injured when a MiG-27 aircraft crash landed in Jodhpur, Rajasthan.
