    Hope Su-30MKI doesn't become new flying coffins . LCA has safest record while 2000 test hours flying yet IAF says not good enough to join

    Is LCA Mk1 not better than MIG-21, MIG-27 & JAGUAR ( All 3 have very good accident record)

    it seems a little unfair here...

    LCA is in test flight period only...and to be honest, in 12 years,13 flying birds just logged a little more than 2000 sorties(and less than 2000 hours flight hours,I'm afraid), such a Record is not enough or too early to say something like 'safest'...

    I thought an IAF Su30MKI 16 jets combat unit could log this flight record similar to LCA's 2000 sorties(around 2000 hours) in just around one year term...MKI has been in service for around 11 years and IAF has 7-9 such units so far.

    Another SU30MKI Crashed
    http://www.bangaloreaviation.com/2013/02/breaking-news-indian-a

    A Su-30MKI air superiority fighter of the Indian Air Force (IAF) crashed at Pokharan range, Rajasthan, earlier today around 1920 IST (1350Z). Both the crew ejected safely and there is no damage reported to any civilian property of any casualties on the ground. A spokesperson for the IAF could not divulge details of the fighter, the squadron it belonged to, or details of the crew members.

    This is the fourth crash of the front-line air superiority fighter of the IAF. The first crash of a Su-30MKI occurred in 2009, again over the desert of Rajasthan in 2009. Later that year another SU-30MKI crashed, again in Rajasthan. The third crash occurred in 2011 at Pune.

    Sources inform Bangalore Aviation, the crash occurred during the full dress rehearsal for Iron Fist, a massive day and night fire power exercise of Indian Air Force at the Pokhran range, to demonstrate its integrated combat capabilities.

    Eyewitnesses say the fighter, which was "fairly high, may be around 7,000ft", released flares, a standard procedure during night exercises, followed by the firing of a missile from the aircraft. Soon after the launch, the Su-30MKI caught fire mid-air, and the crew ejected. The aircraft broke in to two major pieces before crashing to the earth in two balls of fire.

    Apart from marking the debut of the indigenously developed Light Combat Aircraft (LCA) Tejas, the 'Iron Fist' exercise will feature over 100 aircraft from across the IAF including the Sukhoi Su-30MKI, Mirage 2000, Jaguar, MiG 27, MiG 21, MiG 29, various helicopters, UAVs, and AWACS and early warning platforms.

    The exercise is to be witnessed on February 22, by Indian President Pranab Mukherjee, Defence Minister A.K. Antony, Chief of Air Staff, Air Chief Marshal N.A.C. Browne, senior officials from across the government and armed forces, military attaches of various countries and the national media. At this time, it is not known whether the exercise will proceed, but we speculate that it will.

    As per Wikipedia the Indian Air Force bases with the Su-30MKI are:
    Bareilly AFS: 15 Wing’s 8 Squadron (Sqn) Eight Pursoots and 24 Hunting Hawks
    Bhatinda AFS: 34 Wing – 17 Sqn. Golden Arrows
    Chabua AFS: 14 Wing – 102 Sqn. Trisonics
    Halwara AFS: 34 Wing – 220 Sqn. Desert Tigers
    Jodhpur AFS: 32 Wing – 31 Sqn. Lions
    Pune (Lohegaon) AFS: 2 Wing – 20 Sqn. Lightning and 30 Sqn. Rhinos
    Tezpur AFS: 11 Wing – 2 Sqn. Winged Arrows

    Do flares ever hang up on the aircraft they are deployed from?

    It is more like 11 years. As long as they are still produced under contract, they will likely be replaced. These things aren't automatic though and could take years to come up with a supplemental budget.

    the older sukhois were sent back to russia and replced by desi sukhois which are flaring up and falling down, as far as i can interpret from this report and older report all sukhois failed due to same problem, ie some technical glitch where plane sets itself on fire
