shiv how come these once retired planes r used for this exerscise.............

i know that IAF is facing fighter plane crunch,but this does not mean that we start using these planes once again........i don't see any logic behind thos

These are Mig 27s and not Mig 23s. The mig 23s have been retired from active service not the 27s. so they can very well take part in the event.

these are mig-27s, flying free at jaisalmer. the reason for the post header is that the air chief said at a press conference the day before that the entire flogger fleet had been grounded as a result of severe maintenance problems at the overhaul stage. but they appear to be flying in rajasthan!

Hats off to our brave pilots who put their lives to protect our nation by flying these rust filled aircrafts.

Its high time now for our politicians to come out of their cozy lounge and arm our defence forces adequately to guard our motherland.

Jai Hind
