    Is there any special reason for it to loiter for 20 min before returning ?? Possibly scanning the area on the other side of the border ! ;)

    2 near-misses by IAF jets in one day - The Times of India

    NEW DELHI: An IAF fighter being scrambled to intercept an unidentified flying object (UFO) coming from Pakistan and breaching its assigned flying level, and another military aircraft trying to land on a closed runway, both on the same day, had civilian aviation authorities screaming "near-misses" earlier this month.

    In the more serious incident on February 20, a Sukhoi-30MKI fighter apparently breached its assigned flying level to come dangerously close to two passenger aircraft but still could not be contacted by the ATC to correct its course. Fortunately, a tragedy was averted with the passenger aircraft successfully staying clear of the Sukhoi.

    "The civilian air traffic control had assigned this aircraft flying level of 22,000 feet. The aircraft instead went way higher and went to 35,600 feet. This level and the adjoining level was assigned to two international airliners, one of Thai, other KAR Airways," said a highly-placed aviation official.

    IAF, however, said the Sukhoi had been scrambled to intercept a UFO which was detected moving towards the international border with Pakistan near Amritsar. "The UFO later turned out to be a weather balloon adrift. There was no near-miss," said an IAF officer.

    But civilian authorities maintained that the Sukhoi, while wrongly ascending in the Amritsar airspace, breached the minimum vertical safety level with the two civilian aircraft which, between them were carrying over 500 passengers. Instead of the minimum 1,000-feet separation, the Sukhoi was just 700 feet away from the planes while wrongly zooming up the stratosphere.

    During these hair-raising moments, the ATC frantically tried to contact the Sukhoi but could not establish contact with the pilot. But the scarier bit came when the plane landed in Ambala. "We were told that the defence authorities asked the pilot as to what happened and why did he deviate from his assigned level. And the pilot reportedly told the authorities that his aircraft's altitude measuring machine (altimeter) was not working," said the official.

    The other incident took place when an IAF AN-32 transport aircraft came close to wrecking havoc on other aircraft in the vicinity by trying to land on a closed runway at the Delhi airport. Aviation officials said the AN-32 was supposed to land on runway 09 but instead tried to land on runway 10. "We detected the anomaly at the last moment and guided it to its designated runway. There seems to have been some fault at the pilot's end," the official said.

    7th generation fighter jets should have hypersonic capabilities. This means a fighter jet which can intercept hostile satellites or UFOs in outer space. HAL & DRDO should look into this technology. :D

    One GREEN alien is always spying on us on our western border.... it might be a drug cache drop or any other innovative way to push drugs across border.

    But don't you think DRDO should look into this Star Wars tech right now?
