    I was there @ the SSR International Airport in Mauritius, when an IAF Mirage 2000 (KF-119) had made a crash landing as the pilot had forgotten to lower his undercarriage.

    The pilot was squadron leader Ram Kumar.

    Quite remarkable he made it as CO after that incident. He must be a very good fighter pilot indeed.

    Human life is more valuable then the jets. The jets can be made and purchased skilled pilots cannot be brought back from the dead.

    Its high time the IAF retires ageing jets like MiGs and Mirages and starts inducting Tejas and Rafales.

    That'll be good for the pilots and good for national security.

    Look at those shameless smiles. Ram Kumar has crashed 2 Mirage 2000 aircraft, a feat i am sure he shares with a very very few select "top guns".

    Pilots from other air forces take smiling photos when they shoot down enemy aircraft. In IAF, they do this when they bring down their own aircraft.

    Who the hell needs war, IAF does better a better job of aircraft attrition at peacetime.

    Guru.

    Is the AM required to fly or maintain proficiency on type at his presnt rank ? Or is he getting a high at the expense of tax payers money ? Insurance or no Insurance will Dassault give a replacement for the crashed airframe ?
