    Hoe many brave lives will be lost, how many families will be shattered and how much tax-payer money will be wasted before the politicians find the courage to do what needs to be done and retire the Mig-21 once and for all ?

    Yes, many of our military aircraft and some of our finest pilots have gone down over the years. And every time this happens, I see the word "phased out" and "modernization" being used to the point of exhaustion. The fact is that there's more to it than just vintage aircraft, shoddy spares and aggressive flying. The all important Air Crash Investigation in the aftermath of the crash is where we really fall short. Once an aircraft crashes, each and every piece of evidence should be heavily scrutinized by forensic experts to prevent the same accident from recurring, instead of doing a namesake investigation and just leaving it at that half way. Find the problem and you can stop the accident even before it occurs!

    Very sad indeed and condolences to the family of Pilot…
    Getting to a squadron leader and losing his precious skills is sheer waste to family and above all country…
    I think the HAL maintenance should be thoroughly revamped and possibly given to private/public partnership as every single plane is crashing…

    Condolences to the family of the pilot.

    @Shiv: This Sathish Chandra is by all likelihood a Paki feigning to be an over zealous Indian jingoist or a retarded juvenile with a foot in the mouth problem. I have seen his BOT like comments sprawled all over ToI comments section. I feel it is imperative to moderate his comments or remove his posting privileges all together to maintain some order in your blog.

    Its utterly ridiculous that the IAF keeps asking the moon from Tejas Mk-1, on one hand.

    And on the other, it keeps flogging the old MiG-21s.
