It is sad and almost prophetic that the CAS commented on HAL capabilities and then we lost a Mirage 2000 and two pilots.
The pilots were apprantly carrying out an acceptance check on the AC delivered by HAL.
Not confirmed but very likely to be the cause, AC suffered a control malfunction immediately as it lifted off resulting in dropping heavily on 2 the runway and it's landing gear collapsing. Due to it's momentum AC crashed through arrester barrier &some walls. Both pilots killed.
My question is ;does HAL even deserve to exist? And even more serious...can the IAF and the country afford an aircraft manufacturing company with such poor work ethics?
Do also recall the case of SF soldiers dying while slithering from an ALH because the cable boom broke!!
Someone should have been hanged for that. I can recall dozens of such incidents and in every single case...even where HAL was indicted (rare because of pressures) never was it penalized.Sad but true..
