It is very strange that there are many indian airforqce aircraft are always crashing down. No where elsae in the world it happens liker this. Is tshis due to improper training ior improper maintenance or sabotage to raise the defence buddget? What ever it may be, ther indian armed forces cm that they are the best and yet they can''t stop the cross border te rorm. What a shame. It proves that the indians are paper tigers...!!!
