On February 1, a Dassault Mirage 2000 jet fighter of the Indian Air Force crashed during a test flight at an airfield in Bangalore in the southern Indian state of Karnataka. Both pilots ejected but were killed during the crash, the country’s military confirmed.

The Indian Air Force has a fleet of around 50 French-made Mirage 2000 fighter jets. They have been undergoing upgrades since the early-2010s.

Authorities are investigating the incident.

    These pilots are true martyreds because they died during defending their own country.
    God forgive them and send their souls to heaven and give comfort to their loved ones. Ameen.

      Hindis don’t believe in heaven or hell but rather karma and reincarnation.

        You mention the good aspects, hell is – Naraka (Sanskrit: नरक) is the Hindu equivalent of Hell, where sinners are tormented after death. It is also the abode of Yama, the god of Death. It is described as located in the south of the universe and beneath the earth.

        Have you read their book or have you talked to them about this that they don’t believe in heaven and hell.

        India is a land of Hindus, Muslims, Christians etc.

        All Hindus believe in God and in heaven and hell. They have their own scripture inwhich God have given them same rules and regulations that exist in other scriptures.

        I think we are first human then we are hindu muslim christian etc.

    Military aircraft do tend to crash. They are after all high performance vehicles meant to push the envelope, and their pilots and mechanics have to be on the job all the time. Whereas Murphy only has to be lucky once. I reckon that on average between 20 to 25% of any military aircraft type will crash or break down at some point. Sad news for the families of the pilots though.

    French junk

      All jets crash, no matter the manufacture and country of origin and as a post above says: “Shit happens…”
      So your statement is just stupid.

      And we should hold back on all the theories on the cause, for respect for the pilots and their families, until we have evidence.

        As I said French Junk

          as we saw the rainfall of russian planes during last weeks, i think, russian junk is correct, french junk not.

          french planes are much more safe tham russians. also ariadne had no trouble in the last 20 years. not like soyuz.

          no french nuclear reactor went wrong. look at russian ones.

          je suis france!
