UPI Hears...

Indian and U.S. Air Forces have decided to commence five more joint exercises following the evident success of the first such in years last May in Agra, India. The two military forces used to have ties until about 30 years ago, when the United States frowned on India's growing penchant for Soviet weaponry. Four members of the IAF have already headed far north to join the USAF's Operation Cope Thunder, an air-combat training exercise held in the skies above Alaska and Canada for 10 days a few times a year. In case the India's neighbors feel left out, however, the United States is planning its largest ever joint military exercises with Pakistan later this year.

The wreck of a Mig-21 interceptor that caught fire in flight and crashed into a jute field at Rabbhita, Phansidewa, about 15 km from Siliguri, on Monday afternoon. Pilots Squadron Leader Hem Raj and Flying Officer AK Singh bailed out safely at Baraijote, about a kilometre from the crash site. Locals helped them to the nearest police outpost, where they were handed over to Air Force authorities. About 30,000 litres of fuel spilled out of the aircraft, causing the fire to spread and destroy jute and other crops. - The Statesman
