Meanwhile, aircraft crashes continue to happen across India. The Jaguar aircraft crash occurred barely after a fortnight when the crash landing of an IAF Cheetah helicopter occurred at Natha Top in Jammu and Kashmir on May 23. The helicopter, too, was said to be on a routine sortie. And on March 20 this year, an Advance Hawk Jet (AJT) trainer was crashed on the Subarnarekha River bed along Jharkhand and Odisha’s border.
