2 IAF officers killed as Mirage crashes in Bengaluru
BNEGALURU: A Mirage 2000 trainer aircraft crashed on Friday soon after taking off from HAL airport here, killing two Indian Air Force officers — Squadron Leaders Siddartha Negi and Samir Abrol. Both were test pilots at IAF’s aircraft and systems testing establishment.
The aircraft, which was recently upgraded by Hindustan Aeronautics Ltd, had been flown six times by HAL test pilots, and Friday’s flight was the second customer (IAF) sort
so much so for the skill n efficiency of HAL. Better put the HAL engineers too on board for testing.
if you want HAL to survive and do well first kick out employees who came in through quota system. uncivilized lazy with 40% minimum basic marks gets inducted ignoring talent. the result is in front of you!!
HAL is showing progress. After scr3wing up all the MiG-21s, now it's the turn of Mirage. HAL can upgrade any fighter jet to a flying coffin.

Privatization of HAL can save many more lives and $$. Give HAL to Mahindra or Tata or L&T. Fire 50% of the staff. Hire fresh blood
HAL has no credibility or competence! It's high time the government shuts it down to prevent more such tragedies!
HAL most incompetend gov org in India
.Such loss of our loved & respected defence personnels is just unacceptable

See the fate. Organisations like HAL can’t even repair & upgrade some 40 years old technilogy of Mirage fighters wants to build latest tech fighters for us
HAL needs some strict action. These incidents will bring down the morale of the country and IAF.
will government file a murder case against the culprits who did not do their work well.
my deepest condolences to the berieved families
My first hand experience with some HAL fellows: quota or no quota - they are the most useless, good for nothing, laziest of creeps....
And pappu is supporting HAL staff and their union.
It should be make mandatory to include Pappu on board in all future test flights by !!

HAL - what a blot this is on India. Show the inefficiency in which tax payers money is being used there. They can''t even get one plane in the air.

this is the quality of low caste and converted pieces of garbage employees
opposition should be very happy... but India is crying for the loss of our brave men
India has lost two brave sons.
Very sad moment. Indian army the whole Nation is with you
Indian citizens need to understand that airforce is depleted. our brave pilots are flying Mirage which is from 70s. heavens sake forget the politics and get Rafales soon.
And are (HAL) asking for manufacturing Rafale!!!
Sad. Two good pilots list. HAL must be privatized today!
