Week After Flight, President Wants To Know Why Su-30MKIs Are Crashing

President of India Pratibha Patil has expressed concern and asked to be supplied with more information on the grounding of the Indian Air Force's Sukhoi fleet, just days after she became the first ever woman to fly in a Su-30MKI fighter. Sources tell LiveFist that Air HQ is currently preparing a comprehensive docket with information on the November 30 accident involving a Sukhoi-30MKI, in which both pilots survived, plus information on the procedures used by the IAF which necessitates such temporary no-flying periods to eliminate immediate problem areas that may have flight safety implications across the fleet.

Just to stir up the irony a little more, here's what the folks at Irkutsk had to say in a trumpeting little statement (nevermind the English) on the day that the President went up in the MKI: "In India, this plane has become a symbol of national pride. It takes part in all military parades and aviation exhibitions held in the country, successfully represents the national air forces on the international military games. Its image is placed on the anniversary coin which has been let out to the 75th anniversary of the air forces of India."

THE BIGGEST FARCE WAS THIS WOMAN TAKING JOYRIDES IN THE Su30. SHE WASTED ABOUT 30-40LAKHS OF THE TAXPAYERS MONEY FOR THE SORTIE JUST TO SATISFY HER OCTOGENARIAN FETISH. THIS DOES NOT INCLUDE THE FANFARE/SECURITY COST AND THE COST OF TIME WASTED FOR THE JOYRIDE.
WHAT HAS HER 30 min SORTIE BEEN ABLE TO DEFINE:
THAT THE Su30 IS THE SAFEST OR THE BEST WAR MACHINE -- NYET

THAT WOMEN CAN FLY FIGHTERS - NYET

THAT THE AF IS COMBAT WORTHY - NYET

THAT SHE WASTED THE EXCHEQUERS MONEY - JA

THAT AS THE SUPREME COMMANDER OF THE INDIAN ARMED FORCES SHE HAS ALL THE TIME TO GO GALLIVANTING ON JOY RIDES BUT NO TIME TO MEET THE VETERANS WHO TAKE THE EXTREME STEP OF RETURNING THEIR MEDALS IN DISGUST OF GOVT APATHY. - JA -JA

THAT THE WELFARE OF THE ARMED FORCES IS NOT HER CONCERN - ONLY HER FUN & FROLICK MATTERS - JA-JA HURRAY

Who is she to bother...ask her to go back to her kitchen, where she is best suited, and cook. Thats what she's fit for.

past 12 yrs there were no Su-30 crashes becoz IAF probably was flying Russian made ones.

Just when IAF started flying HAL made Su-30, we get 2 crashes in a yr.

Wait till these plames become the next ‘Flying Coffins’

Dear Guys ,
Our President is highly honorable person , and she is the supreme power of three forces , please kindly think before u ink .

Shiv,

I agree with NJS above. You should not have allowed people to post such an insulting comment about our president. Likes dislikes apart, the position of the president must be highly respected just like PM or Chief Justice.

She is the worst President India has ever seen.
Democrazy of India has proved that we can get a dog hire a throne.
Congress did their best.
The county did better when APJ KALAM was president.

I dont know ,how she can fare better as a prez of India? like spending millions on her security and stuff?

One can decide the capability of a country by having first class looks at its leadership.And look whom we got here......

Our President is highly honorable person , and she is the supreme power of three forces I wish this was so!
Sirf Kehne ke liye Supreme Commander? Where was she when the veterans returned their medals or when the Services went to her(Supreme Commander) for redressal after the SCPC?
& I like your tag. Supply another Su 30 in lieu on warranty. What about the Pilots. Woh kya? Unki bhi warranty card chahiyye kya? Buy one get one free!!!!

I wish she had asked for a report on the welfare of our armed forces and their families. Does she even know what hardships the family of an armed forces personnel face. What has she done for the armed forces till date.

Oh BTW if I remember correctly she has a case of murder against her! How bout coming clean on that one Ms. President, before you ask for reports from IAF. Serve your husband dal-roti that suits you better.

To add few lines here for our friends about the rudimentary manufacturing site ,HAL/Nashik for these most sought after aircrafts of the world...
I and my friend ,both are engineer by profession, happened to visit HAL/ Nasik on a rainy day in July 2007 and we were allowed to have a glimse of manufacturing of this beautiful flying machine after lot of persuation. But to our horror and utter disbelief we found our local engineers and technicians were struggling to refit/retrofit parts in eleveted position with very vintage tools, gadgets ,manually with the help of drawings and diagrams at their hand like repairing trucks and buses in an Automobile garage/ factory and many of the buildings had seepage of water from roofs and poor state of affairs from old Russian instruments,panels, obsolete gadgets etc..... we felt the pain and stunned to come to a conclusion why our young and experienced pilots are increasingly losing aircrafts in accidents....

When you handover the country to an Italian Mafia Goon, What else can you expect? She will hire another Fraud to accompany her for her deeds or to keep the mouth shut and let her do her deeds. Ie plundering the countries wealth. Did you not read the article that the charges have been dropped against her biological father Quattrochi and that India is signing several thousand of crores worth of defense deals with Italy.
