New Delhi: The number of accidents involving military aircraft has significantly reduced over the past few decades, Defence Minister Manohar Parrikar said on Friday. The number of such accidents has come down from an average of 29 per year during 1970s to 17 per year during 2001-10, Parrikar said during question hour in the Lok Sabha. It further came down to just nine accident per year during 2011-15, he said.
