A Mirage 2000 fighter jet of the Indian Air Force (IAF) test-landed on the Yamuna Expressway in Noida near Delhi at 6.40 am on May 21, 2015. Flown down from Gwalior, MP, the aircraft landed briefly on the highway and took off again. A makeshift Air Traffic Control (ATC) was also set up for the event. The exercise was part of an IAF drill in view of emergency situations in wartime when airbases become the first targets of enemy shelling.
