An Indian Air Force (IAF) plane crashed in Medak, Andhra Pradesh on Friday morning.The plane was a HPT-32 trainer aircraft and had two IAF pilots on board.Nitin Jain and Chaturvedi (full name not yet known) were the training instructors at the Air Force Academy.The two pilots were on a trainee flight.Defence Minister A K Antony said on Wednesday that thirty-two MiG series aircraft of the Indian Air Force crashed in the last five years killing eight pilots.The plane was two kilometers from landing. The plane crashed on a barren stretch of land. There were no casualties reported on the ground."32 MiG aircraft have met with accidents during the last five years and a total of eight pilots have lost their lives in these accidents," he said while replying to a query in Rajya Sabha.


About MiG's losses or chashs, of course like Mirage III, Draken, and all about 40 years old airchafts have these negative numbers.
