The Indian Ministry of Defence has carried out a successful trial landing of a fighter aircraft on the Yamuna Expressway on Thursday morning.
The Indian Air Force’s (IAF) Mirage 2000 successfully landed on the expressway near Mathura as part of an exercise to use road runways for landings during emergencies.
The MoD issued a statement following the aircraft’s successful landing, saying: “Road runways are used for emergency landing and become important if airbases are crippled during war times.
“The IAF has been considering the use of national highways for emergency landing by fighter aircraft.”
It further stated this capability was demonstrated by IAF landing a Mirage-2000 aircraft, which was airborne from one of the IAF bases in Central India.
