MIG-29 is a highly advanced twin engine jet unlike the MIG-21s. Unfortunately we lose most of our aircraft in sorties rather than in war.
Thats unfortunate, loosing a pilot is a much bigger loss than the aircraft. Hope the missing pilot is safe and traced soon.
fighter aircraft crash in all countries that practice seriously.. The US also has lost hundreds in past years. In India it makes headlines so it looks bad. It is very common in large airforces.
May the missing pilot be recovered alive.
Loosing a pilot is more troubling than loosing a jet. Hope and pray for survival of second pilot.

Fighter Planes crash all over world during routine sorties. And track record of safety of fighter planes in Indian Airforce and Indian Naval Aviation is far better than many advanced countries.
Does these costly Fighter aircraft also have insurance???
Hope the 2nd pilot is found. Let the investigations complete to know the root cause.
It has become quite a common news. We are losing both men and money for nothing.
Mig planes-flying coffin must be replaced at the earliest
All tax payers money gone again
These old Russian planes are flying coffins. They should be replaced at the earliest with reliable ones.
India has the highest number of aircraft crashes in non combat operations - something wrong with Indon pilots
That's because you have no idea about the crashes of other militaries
Losing aircrafts and soldiers is a daily thing for the Indian Defence Force.
congress and nehru to be blamed for purchasing substandard military hardwares
Throw all MIG into dustbin. Humari beizatti karne ka fighter hai. Is ghatiya MIG ki wajah humari troll hota hai hamesha. Bring rafale into action
