Return the choppers? Shit!

Now there's definitely a case for sabotage.

The video of the Dhruv crash can be seen at: http://vtolblog.com/?p=623 There's no evidence to back up the claims of "fire" spread by the Ecuadorian media in any of the images available. In fact, prior to impact with the ground, theres no hint of even smoke from the tail section, which would naturally accompany any "fire". HAL needs to act fast to dispel the false propaganda. A professionally managed media counter-offensive needs to be organized by HAL ASAP! If it is sabotage, then EADS would possibly head the list of suspects. If that is substantiated even remotely, then the EADS… Read more »

HAL is in la la land. At a time when they should proactively be looking to promote their product … they are scratching each others asses.

Why dont the idiots … get a hold of some top Ecuadorian journalists … fly them here on biz class.. in like 72 hours … show them around … Get the IAF to fly them a sortie in Leh … give them a Taj Mahal memento and send them on their way …

Is this Chairman Naik dude too stunned to take an executive decision ??

If there is any design fault or technical error it becomes HAL's responsibility. But here the thing is toally different. Why should HAL be blamed for pilot error? Vested interests at work. It means money controls Ecuadorian newspapers.

"engines were manufactured in 2007, whereas the choppers were made in 2008" – I didn't know Turbomeca engines were perishable products like tomatoes & brinjals which have to be used close to their date of purchase! Anyone care to explain?

Give them a refund?! No way! Let's give 'em a few Arjun tanks as compensation. Ask them how they want them — gift wrapped or in carry bags.

And by the way, I would like to add that if indeed the Ecuadorians were pressurised by our govt into buying the ALH, then I'm absolutely thrilled because it simply shows that we Indians have tremendous clout nowadays and we are also using it well! Bharath Maata ki Jai!

I smell something fishy here. Some people don't want to see HAL in other countries. I am 100% sure about sabotage…

1) This is first major sale of Dhruv and HAL was committed to it. They won the contract against major arms sellers.

2) HAL not only trained pilot and servicemen but also put a 10 member HAL team in Ecuador. All these are to get a reputation.

Now it is unbelievable with in days after the sale one of these helicopter crashed with out any reasons.

International arms selling is a very dirty business, HAL have to learn from US companies.

EL UNIVERSO translation: The Air Force commander, Rodrigo Bohorquez, admitted yesterday that there are technical comments to the seven aircraft purchased by the SAF to the company Hindustan Aeronautics Limited, India, and that the company is demanding compliance with the contract, awarded in 2008. "During the review of the new contract is discovered. If it were a large failure and we can not really overcome it would have to repay (the helicopters) and enforce the security, "he said. Among the observations made by a technical team from the institution states that the year of manufacture of the engines of French… Read more »

Really, this is nonsense ! without any proof whatsoever, the Equadorian media is blaming the Dhruv. let the investigation board come up with the facts, then they can discuss anything as drastic as returning the helicopters or asking HAL to replace the equipment at no cost..its like the IAF asking BAe to replace the Hawk that crashed soon after it was inducted when nothing is proven against the Hawk itself. I don't think its sabotage, because no pilots would put their lives at such risk. Its only because the Dhruv did not catch fire and because of its crashworthiness design… Read more »
