    this whole incident has become a black spot on image of Indian air force and all the satellite of ISRO.
    they cant even locate a downed pilot in their on own country and are talking about doing (abbottabad) behind enemy lines.

    Does our airforce carry out these searches using systematic processes such as Bayesian search theory? Or is it a haphazard, look where you can approach?

    132 sorties and they could not find anything.

    CAG has heavily criticised ISRO's remote sensing capabilities and underperformance especially after the failure of YSR's crash !

    It is better not to talk about IAF as it has behaved like a WWII force when it comes to SAR !

    While it's easy criticize IAF's and ISOR's capabilities, its important realize that they are not searching for a wreckage or a downed pilot. They are looking for debris spread across kilometers, and if at all any, remains of pilot. Which is already covered under thick blanket of snow and in extreme terrain. It's not as easy as it seems!

    Special Team from High Altitude Warfare School (HAWS), Gulmarg is also in search operation.

    To the Anonymous:

    You don't have any idea about the terrain and weather condition.
    Normal people find hard to breath in such areas & winter has also arrived. Area has already faced a low profile snowfall.

    All the routes to that area are going to be officially closed after 30th of this month till summer arrives. Though you can go. But jst imagine how tough would be the terrain & weather if govt is closing it.

    Wow! Bayesian search theory indeed! Somebody has a Ph.D in technology strategy, I see.

    Why do folks assume that the Air Force, which has had decades to think about problems such as this one, hasn't thought about things that it takes an internet warrior all of five seconds to come up with?

    @Devnath – Is there a concept of having Emergency Locator Transmitters (ELTs) and or Personal Locator Beacons (PLBs) in IAF ?? Either with the ejection seat or life-vest of the pilot ???

    And do you believe that satellite aided SAR (ELT/PLB) is hampered by snow conditions?

    I want to give a suggestion to INDIAN AIR FORCE for searching mig29 components & pilot. It should be use INFRATEC CAMERAS. May be it helps for search pilot and plan components.
