An eight-seater aircraft owned by the Punjab government crashed near Ludhiana on Wednesday noon, killing both the pilots on board.
The crash took place at Jugiana, about 12 km from Ludhiana when the aircraft was trying to land at the Sahnewal airport on a routine flight, according to the preliminary eyewitness account by local villagers.
Capt Manjit Singh Khokhar and Capt Dalip Kataria, both experienced pilots, were killed as the plane suddenly lost height and caught fire soon after ploughing into a thick growth of trees on the premises of an abandoned factory at Jugiana village, barely 4 km short of the airport where the plane was to land.
