Just a day ahead of India’s annual Aero show in Bengaluru, two Surya Kiran planes collided midair, crashing during practice. The two single-engine aircraft had taken off from the Yelahanka airbase in Bengaluru. During the rehearsal for the upcoming show, they collided head-on while performing a maneuver. “One pilot has succumbed to injuries in the Surya Kiran jet crash, two others are being treated,” according to reports. The Surya Kiran aerobatics demonstration team, comprising 13 pilots, use the Hawk Mk-132 aircraft made by UK-based BAE systems and HAL.
