    They are pushing the aircraft too much. The last aircraft was built in 1984.

    The IAF has already pushed the Bison beyond the prescribed limit for the airframe.

    guys today the Telegraph published the picture of the crashed Mig-21 bison.you'll be glad to know that the plane hadn't crashed but crash landed in a open grass area and it hasn't suffered any major damage(at least what i understood looking at the picture)!so i think we won't have to write off the aircraft and it'll soon be back to active service i guess!

    Glad to know no one was injured. Must have taken real courage on the pilots behalf to remain calm rather than ejecting in PANIC immidiately. Incidently am curious to know if this kind of crash by any of the newer and heavier aircrafts would have maintained the airframe in this relatively good condition?? really suprising as the craft seems to have landed in the pic rather than crashing...

    Kunal sir can you tell us whether this aircraft can be repaired or not?i mean looking at its condition i am guessing that it can be repaired as there is no visible massive damage to the airframe itself!thanks in advance.

    I think these kind of incidents happen with all the air forces but somehow our media is too vocal about every issue.


    Which batch of Su30 MKI are stationed at Pune ???
