Frequent Crashes, Obsolete Technology: Downhill Road For MiG-21, India's 'Flying Coffin'

A MIG-21 jet of the Indian Air Force crashed in Shoba Sar Ki Dhani area in Rajasthan's Bikaner district on Friday afternoon. Although the pilot managed to eject safely, the crash has once again led to concerns over the condition of the fighter jets that are well past their expiry date.

The incident comes just a few days after a MiG-21 Bison jet flown by Wing Commander Abhinandan Varthaman was shot down by a Pakistani Air Force F-16 in an aerial dogfight that ensued after they intruded into Indian territory in J&K.
The jet flown by Wing Commander Abhinandan was part of the fleet that is past its retirement age and has been kept operational with repeated upgrades and service life extensions.

Failures due to old system components increase with ageing of aircrafts. However, as system components have a longer life potential than the life of a certified aircraft, service life extension programmes are carried out to maximise the use of the equipment.

Every components in the Aircraft are lifed. And after their useful life they are either condemned or put to furthur tests to fix their extended life. Before take-off there are many ground level tests and testing time is more than flying time. Even the spare parts are regularly exercised to keep it functional ready. The point is - we need MIG 21 like Aircraft without failures/crashes. For this we need to improve the design for which competence we are lacking. Howewer we are good in jugad tech, ie improvising on existing Aircraft to suit our needs and of course extract maximum benefit from our assets.
