Re: Military Flight Safety

Here is a link to the video of the crash. Looks like the tail rotor hit some iron rod at the very last sec. Also I am not a pilot but the landing approach looks very fast. May be that's how it is done

Re: General Indian Military News & Discussion

SAARC is meaningless otherwise we could have built a regional body to take care of a common interest. Problem lies somewhat within our region that we have so many conflicting interests--- religious diversities -- is it a boon or an overhead?
