India Air Force's MiG-21 crashes in Punjab, pilot killed

Reacting to the death of the pilot of the fighter jet, the Indian Air Force said in a statement that it condoles the tragic loss and stands firmly with the bereaved family.
Looks like the pilot just got married in 2019, I feel so sad for the parents....callous for me to say this but wife may atleast remarry considering how marriage is not once in life character test anymore for an individual but for parents, its brutal to lose a young and useful son like that....

For some idiotic reason, zee news has Tejas on this article as image? WTF....no many seem to be capable in doing their job even basic ones...

I am saddened that another pilot has died piloting a MiG-21., a type which does not have a good safety record and a type whose replacement was scheduled long ago by what has proved to a far safer type.

Why do Russians have to copy every stupid thing that America does

Because Russia is the originator of stupid things while US tries to play bad copycat.

Russian ejection seats are killing more Russian pilots than by its enemies... So Putin has to declare war against its own ejection seats. Send in the Little Green Dudes! :facepalm:

Iss thread ka notification aata hai tab gandi wali phatt ti hai
Armed forces are by definition dangerous career...
Armed aviation is even more hazardous...
People who get sentimental and emotional with handful of accidents should realize that...
IAF is a big force with big fleet and with honorable work culture...where incidents and accidents are promptly reported officially

Compare that with boy band of PAF where an ejection seat company reports loss of their jet

Mig 21 has had more than a handful crashes, 3 this year of which 2 were fatal. IAF has a big fleet but at the same time it is still way short of its desired numbers for almost all platforms, fighters, AEWACS, mid air refuellers, etc.

you are right but have some perspective w.r.t. only crashes

just checked on wiki, US armed forces suffered 6 KIA in two UH-60 chopper crashes this year so far.
last year 2 pilots were killed in 2 crashes (F-15 and F-16 which are far more newer and advanced w.r.t. MiG-21 Bison)

Aircraft crashes are measured per flight hour or number of flights/sorties. Its makes no sense to compare absolute number of crashes between the Indian Air Force which has about 1,200 aircraft with the USAF which has more than 5,500 aircraft (they have more than 1,200 F-16s alone !)

Also those UH-60 chopper crashes don't come in this 5,500 aircraft because they were from the Army National Guard not USAF.

The Indian Air Force has lost 3 Mig-21 Bisons in just 5 months out of roughly 80 in service, which works
out to an annual attrition rate of almost 10% a year!
