Pilot missing 2 days after the failure of MiG 29K crash Marine expands rescue ops. The second pilot – appointed Commander Nishant Singh by the Marine. It is still untraceable, though rescue teams were able to retrieve one pilot on Thursday. Indian Navy research and rescue teams started on Saturday with the attempt to find a pilot who was missing. A plane trainer MiG 29K collapsed in the Arabian Sea two days earlier, but they were unable to make progress.
The two-seat trainer jet, originally of Russia, descended off the west coast of India on Thursday after departing the deck of India’s only INS Vikramaditya aircraft carrier. The second pilot – appointed Commander Nishant Singh by the Marine – is still untraceable, though rescue teams were able to retrieve one pilot on Thursday. “Further boats, aircraft and helicopters on Saturday were pressurising to intensify searches. No luck yet,” said the officials.
The fourth collision involving the maritime fighter fleet MiG 29K crash was the Thursday explosion. Although the cause of the crash is unclear, India’s top auditor found flaws in the deck-based fighter in 2016. This involved engine problems, airframe problems and fly-by-wire machine vulnerabilities. Meanwhile, after the reports of the accident, a witty letter wrote to his commanding officer by the lost pilot about his decision to marry who went virally earlier this year releases in social media again.
Singh wrote to his co-ordinator “I regret dropping this bomb onto you so soon, but I intend to drop a nuclear bomb on myself, as you would agree. I realise that just as all the split-second decisions we take in the air in the heat of combat. I am unable to afford the time to reassess my decision. On social media sites, the letter written by the naval aviator compared on 9 May was widely circulated. The letter had a combat spoken word peppered.
Therefore, Singh and his fiancée decided to have the remainder of their lives without killing each other following successful culmination of the three-year comprehensive SCTT (Survivability and Compatibility Checking Tests) courtship. “I seek the approval of you and many other brave men in this spiral of marriage in the graveyard. Hence, incomplete peacetime, totally beyond the line of duties, and willing to give me up in absolute peace,” he says.
In May 2013, hence, before INS Vikramaditya was launched, the Navy commissioned the first squadron of MiG 29K crash fighters at Goa. So far, India has purchased from Russia 45 MiG 29K crash combatants. The navy also plans to launch the fighters at Cochin’s state-owned shipyard on an indigenous aircraft carrier (IAC).
