Washington: A MiG-23 fighter plane has crashed during an air show in the US state of Michigan, the US National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB) informs.

“NTSB investigating the Aug. 13 crash of a Mikoyan-Gurevich MiG-23 near Ypsilanti, Michigan,” the safety board said in a post on X, formerly known as Twitter, on Sunday.
