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?

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??
and great reporting in SL.. ur a brave man!! the pics spk volumes.. though i hv yet to see u on TV. .as i rarely watch TV! 🙂
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
Nothing beautiful about the AN-32. A good workhorse but beyond that it is obsolete enough to be relegated to the many museums in the country.
It is time that the IAF modernises its transport fleet with newer and better aircraft.
Stop accepting Ruski aircraft as the best because of price because even that is not stable anymore what with the Ruski bear being too greedy to milk the Indians as much as possible.
Their idea of trade seems to be to offer a low or moderate price to clinch a deal but only to demand 2 or 3 times the original price once the deal is signed.
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 . . .
