Post ejection injuries at Kargil medical category was downgraded and he flew An-32s. Thereafter joined Indigo Airlines. Abhinandan was very lucky not to have suffered any.

I had been looking for this photo ever since this thread was started. Thought it would be apt to share this memorable photo of the MiG-27ML from my Dad's Albums. My Dad (Army officer) & elder brothers along with squadron maintenance officer, posing in front of a MiG-27 ML of the Tigersharks at Hashimara in early 90's. Dad was posted as GLO at the airbase at that time. Today, he had whatsapped me a report of the Tigersharks being raised at Thanjavur and sent me this photo.

I read in few articles that time- all Mig-21 Bis were to be retired in Q1 2020 leaving just 100+ Bisons as sole Mig-21s in IAF...any news after that?

No. Wait for news of retirement ceremony to come out for MiG-21 bis Type 75

The last retirement was of MiG-21 M/MF Type 96 of 17/101 Squadron with ACM Dhanoa flying the last few sorties.
