A Jaguar fighter jet of the Indian Air Force Thursday suffered an engine failure due to suspected bird hit, forcing its pilot to make an emergency landing at Ambala air base.
Acting promptly, the pilot jettisoned the plane's external fuel tanks and other loads and managed to land the aircraft safely, averting a major disaster, said IAF officials.
One of the fuel tanks landed in a residential area near Ambala air base but no one was injured, added district administration officials.
