The Navy jet was hit by a bird on the right engine causing a fire

 

NEW DELHI| On Saturday Indian Navy Jet MiG-29K fighter crashed shortly after it took off on a training mission from Goa’s Dabolim. The pilots Captain M Sheokhand and Lieutenant Commander Deepak Yadav managed to eject safely and have both been recovered.

According to Commander Vivek Madhwal, a Navy spokesperson, the plane, a trainer version of the fighter, suffered an engine fire.

In June a mishap involving a MiG-29K jet led to Goa airport operations being suspended for 90 minutes.

 

The naval fighter jet’s external fuel tank was inadvertently jettisoned during take-off and caused a fire on the runway. Fighter jets often carry fuel tanks that can be detached as permission requirements.
