Narrative:
PUNE, FEB 17: A Jaguar aircraft of the Pune Air Base crashed at around 12.15 pm at Lohegaon yesterday. The pilot, Flight Lieutenant Agarwal, escaped with minor injuries.

An enquiry court has been ordered to investigate the cause of the accident which occurred when the aircraft was on a routine flight, the Southern Command spokesman said.

This is the first crash of a Jaguar in Pune and the third major air crash in this region.

The crash occurred immediately after the plane took off and reached the end of the runaway when the pilot realised something was amiss. He attempted to crash-land and engaged the plane in the arrester-barrier, which prevented further onward movement of the craft.

According to the spokesman, the pilot got out on his own. He did not comment on the extent of the damage to the aircraft and the runaway.

Immediately after the crash-landing, the area was cordoned off by the Air Force. Civilian air traffic, which was disrupted for a short while in the afternoon, returned to normal later in the evening. A high-level investigating team was expected to ascertain the cause of the accident, the spokesman said.

Only after a study of the area, can conclusions regarding the extent of the damage be drawn, he said.
