Two pilots of an Indian Air Force (IAF) twin-seater Mig-21 trainer aircraft died on Thursday after it crashed close to Rajasthan’s Barmer area.
On Thursday evening, an Indian Air Force MiG-21 twin-seater trainer took off from the Rajasthani air base at Utarlai on a training mission. Near Barmer, the aircraft had an accident at about 9:10 p.m. Injury to both pilots resulted in death. The investigation on the accident’s cause has been ordered.
The issue is that until a drastic course correction is made, this will continue to happen.
We are to blame for this because we are stupid and lazy. The cost to date for the production of 24 Light Combat Aircraft Tejas delivered through September 30, 2021 is Rs 6653 crore, but the Ministry of Defence informed the Rajya Sabha that HAL’s Tejas is not being introduced to replace the Mig-21 fighter aircraft, but rather as part of the modernization of the Indian Air Force.
According to Minister of State for Defence Ajay Bhatt, HAL will build a total of 123 Tejas fighter aircraft. “Further production depends on the necessity for Indian Defense Services & export to customers,” Bhatt added.
End Conclusion: The lives of the pilots and warfighting readiness are not that crucial.
