ya really beautifull. Its so sad to know these incidents happen.
Is really An-32's beautiful?? I felt it is one of the ugliest looking aircraft ever built..
Shiv, is IAF thinking about replacement for AN-32?
some villagers have reported mid air explosion,has it been shot down by chinese stinger clones?

Hey Shiv.. dumb Q.. but arent planes advanced to see stationary obstacles on radar?? isnt technology advanced to blind fly? esp in the military area??

is IAF thinking about replacement for AN-32?——————————u already know about iaf looking for peplacement of these that is IL214
and these an32 are merely 20 year oldand these will be flown till 2030
furthermore there is BE200 available which is good for all IAF,ARMY,NAVY as it can land/take off on water/land and carry respectful load
blog gone dead …beap…beap…beap…………………….
no sight more beautiful than an AN-32 for sore eyes in ladakh, or bhuj.
quite obvious the critics have not been in either place.
simply love the old bird.
even if i have had to sit knee to chest to a crateful of freshly slaughtered chicken, or eggs, debating the fates which put me in such situations, on my way to yet another spell in HAA. Thoise, here we come. and the sudden gasp as the cabin depressurises after landing, and the astringent, mildly bitter smell/taste of burnt kerosene, aka ATF . . .
