    Sorry to hear this , a new platform does have some issues i am sure this will be looked into and fixed.

    Having said that i am still blaming PAF and the pakistani establishment to rush the production line for JF 17 , they might mock us for our delays but at the end a lot of flight tests is better than induction issues later on.

    ^^ ON the contrary, actually I am not sorry to hear this at all. If the pilot had died I would have been sorry at the loss of life. But I am not sorry at the loss of the aircraft. Good riddance to the Thunder-Bandar.

    The good news is the pilot has ejected & is safe.Surely this crash will put some water on the ego of Pakistanis.

    A Pakistani news channel reporting that the pilot is dead.
    RIP.

    R.I.P. for the dead , real cause will be known only after the inquiry. BTW, if the problem is not rectified and accidents continue to occur, then it will very much dent the process of marketing it, which they trying to desperately.

    ATTOCK: A Pakistan Air Force (PAF) JF17 jet crashed into Mullah Mansoor mountain in Attock on Monday. The jet was on a routine operational training mission when it crashed, killing the pilot on board.

    Rescue teams found the body of Squadron Leader Mohammad Hussain three kilometers from the crash site.

    Yusuf at least Mig 21 has seen combat, Junk fighter yet to meet IAF, look what is happening to it, BTW i saw news report pilot died because para shoot failed. If i remember correctly chines made first production fighter within 1000 days of the first test flight. That shows the quality of fighter.

    oh forget it was cheap-cheap fighter.

    Would you guys be saying RIP to a Paki soldier/pilot in an event of a war?

    We have been at war with them overt covert. None of my sympathies with the dead pilot and his families. One fighter and pilot less for India to contend with.

    R I P to the pilot..

    Sound like engine problem, RD-33 is a Russian engine, Same engine use in IAF Mig-29s, Reliable and good but i assume PAF been using Chinese or east block spare parts, IAF use Russian spares for MIG-29s..
