Indian Air Force pilot jettisons fuel tanks after hitting birds

The terrifying incident happened on Friday in Ambala in northern India after the aircraft suffered engine failure due to a bird strike while taking off. The Jaguar fighter jet took off from Ambala airbase on a training mission carrying two additional fuel tanks and practice bombs. The pilot quickly jettisoned the plane’s external fuel tanks and practice bombs, and managed to land the aircraft safely, averting a major disaster. Though most of the cargo fell within the airbase, one of the fuel tanks landed in a residential area near Ambala airbase. But no one was injured.
