Pilot killed in Indian Airforce MiG-27 crash

In yet another crash in IAF, a MiG-27 fighter went down near Siliguri in West Bengal on Tuesday afternoon, killing the pilot, a squadron leader. IAF's MiG-27 combat fleet had hardly flown in 2005-2006 after it was found that their R-29 engines were causing a large number of accidents. From 1971-72 to 2003-04, IAF's consolidated average rate stood at 1.09 accidents per 10,000 hours of flying, roughly translating into the loss of 23 aircraft and the death of 10-14 pilots every year. The crash rate did come down dramatically to around 0.27 accidents per 10,000 hours of flying, with an over 50% reduction in crashes after 2003-04. Of the 793 single-engined MiG-21s inducted into IAF since 1963, well over 330 have been lost in accidents.....................Times of India

Taiser, from your comments on other posts, it seems you are a poor inbred Paki, getting your education in India, since Pakistan is a failed country and can't provide you anything except Madrassa lingual statistics.

And Pakis like you are definately not welcome in China, since Muslims are considered cousins of Pigs in China.

Want proof, watch Journeymans documentary on Islam in China hahaha

OOoooooooooooooH look whose talkin,
Tushar the racist. Men and transgenders of all ages give it up for the marvelous Tushar, who on Asian Defence not only proved he doens't have a brain, but also proved why Indians are being beaten up by the Australians.

Transgenders watch out the overly dramatic Tushar from India has spoken!!!!

Transgenders: Go Tushar go go go
its yo birthday go go go

Taiser: Tushar, I am not from Pak but I will be racist if u call me an "inbred" from Pak.

@Tushar, about the 50 billion expend blog

Tushar, you probably think Im from Pak. but Im not alright. I swear on god that I am not from Pak.

But why in the name of god are you comparing India, a large country with a smaller country that is at war with a notorious terrorist group.

WHY??? I have never seen such immature behavior in my entire life.
Pak is scarred and hurting while India is fat and growing, and your comparing yourself to a smaller nation??????

You disgust me.....

OSWALD WAS MY CHILDHOOD FRIEND .STOP THAT PAK AND CHINA TALK AND REALIZE HE SACRIFICED HIS LIFE FOR US, AS HIS MATES SAID WHENEVER THERE WAS A DIFFICULT TASK , HE LED THE WAY.
