19 Days After Crash, IAF MiG-29 Pilot Declared Dead

Squadron Leader Dharmendra Singh Tomar, who went down in a MiG-29 on October 18, is dead. Sources tell Headlines Today that body parts were found today at the crash site in the Chokhang Mountains in Lahaul-Spiti, Himachal Pradesh. Hope had always been bleak a couple of days after the crash, considering the terrain he went down in. Since the crash, I've gotten to know several of Sqn Ldr Tomar's friends, coursemates and seniors in the IAF. Heartfelt condolences to his family. R.I.P.

Rest in Peace , my brave friend . Full sympathies for the family and God bless the parents for giving Bharat a maharathi.

I would like to have a honest and complete enquiry on what went wrong ? and why only two planes left for a late night exercise ?

The incident is really sad.
But before blaming the MIGS we have to go deep in to the matter. Apart from India, countries like Vietnam , North Korea , Romania have a large number of old version Migs. In those countries the Migs have a good flying records with negligible crash incidents. Then why it is these jets have poor flying records in India?
