Two Indian Air Force fighter jets crashed after colliding in the air during a training exercise about 300 kilometers south of the capital New Delhi.
Both planes took off from Gwalior Air Base, about 50 kilometers east of where they went down.
Local government spokesman Ankit Astana told Reuters news agency that two of the three crew members of one plane were rescued and taken to hospital.
The status of the third crew member was not immediately clear, and no details about the crew of the second plane were reported. The planes that crashed were Su-30s and Mirage-2000s, the ANI news agency reported on Twitter, citing Defense Ministry sources.
Saturday's incident was the latest in a string of aviation accidents involving India's military air fleet.
Last October, five soldiers died when their helicopter crashed in Arunachal Pradesh, near the country's militarized and disputed border with China.
It was the second military helicopter crash in the northeastern state this month, weeks after a Cheetah helicopter went down near the city of Tawang.
