Russian-built MiG-29K fighter aircraft

PANAJI (PTI): A Russian-made MiG-29K fighter aircraft, recently inducted into the Indian Navy, developed a technical problem at INS Hansa base in Goa but caused no casualties, naval officials said here Monday.

Flag Officer Commanding Goa Area (FOGA) Sudhir Pillai said the pilot had to apply emergency brakes on the airstrip when the error occurred, resulting in a tyre burst.

"There was a hydraulic failure of the aircraft because of which the pilot had to apply emergency brakes," Pillai told PTI

MiG-29K is an all-weather carrier-based multi-role fighter aircraft, which is recently inducted in Indian Navy and based at INS Hansa.

He said no inquiry has been commissioned of the incident as the snag occurred due to 'technical problem'.

"Applying emergency brakes in case of hydraulic failure is a standard operating procedure," Pillai said.
