On MiG Fighters, IAF chief BS Dhanoa Says "No One Drives Even Cars That Old"

New Delhi: The MiG-21, an Indian Air Force fighter jet, is often a victim of accidents. So far, many Air Force personnel have become victims of the incident. This is the reason why the Air Force is being criticised from time to time. Now, Air Force Chief BS Dhanoa has also tightened its grip on it. "We are still running the 44-year-old MiG-21, while after so many years nobody drives old cars. This is being possible because of the maintenance and hard work of the engineers.

Speaking at a seminar on modernisation and indigenization of the Air Force, Air Chief Marshal said, the MiG-21 aircraft of the Air Force is more than four decades old but it still remains the backbone of the Army. The MiG-21 fighter jet has crashed hundreds of times. The Air Chief said that hardly any country in the world blows up such an old fighter jet. We don't even have the option.

Despite adversity, the Air Force not only protects the border but also responds to enemy challenges. On the other hand, Defence Minister Rajnath Singh said, the Indian Air Force is a professional Air Force and the world has accepted our iron after the Balakot attack.

The Indian Air Force will have the first batch of fighter aircraft 'Rafael' next month, while 36 Rafale aircraft will join the army fleet by 2022. In the coming days, 114 fighter aircraft will also be with the Air Force for which tenders have been issued. All these things were said by Air Chief Dhanoa at a seminar at the Air Force Auditorium in Delhi. The opposition had made it a major issue over the Rafale aircraft deal.
