An Indian Air Force Sukhoi Su-30MKI fighter crashed early Thursday morning while on a routine training exercise, killing one of the two pilots on board.

This the first time than an Indian Su-30 has crashed and a board on inquiry has been formed to look into the incident, says the service. Its Su-30 fleet has not been grounded because of the incident, it adds. No other details were available.

New Delhi has bought 50 Su-30s directly from Russia and state-owned Hindustan Aeronautics license-produces the fighter in the country as well.
