A Navy plane has crashed into a multi-storey building in a residential area near Begumpet, Hyderabad. One of the pilots on-board has been confirmed dead. The 4 people injured have been taken to hospital. Firefighters have reached the spot to douse the fire.
Unconfirmed reports suggest that one of the planes was unable to elevate after a diving stunt.
The plane, part of the ‘Sagar Pawan’ contingent of the Indian Navy, was performing a stunt during India’s second aviation summit, which began in Hyderabad today. Over 100 commercial and passenger transport companies like Boeing, Airbus and Cessna are currently taking part in the event.
