Plane Crashes At India Air Show

March 3, 2010

News By Al Jazeera

Two people have died and four more injured after an Indian naval aircraft crashed during an acrobatics display in the southern city of Hyderabad.

Police said the plane came down in a residential neighbourhood of the city on Wednesday.

Indian TV news channels showed the plane flying in a formation at the air show shortly before it crashed into densely populated land adjacent to the show ground.

“In the final phase, the aircraft appears to have gone out of control. They crashed into a building and the pilots have died,” Nirmal Verma, a navy chief, said.

He was unable to say if there were further casualties on the  ground.

But Prerna Suri, Al Jazeera’s India correspondent, said the state police department had confirmed the two deaths and four injured.

“The Indian army, the state police and the fire department have been deployed to comb the area for survivors,” she said.

“It was a very crowed area so the casualty count is expected to go up.

“The aircraft was manned by two pilots, both have been declared dead.

Investigation

Suri said the cause of the crash was not known yet, but that an investigation was already underway.

“There are a lot of questions being asked about how an air show could be held so close to a very crowded residential area, so close to the airport,” Suri said.

The crash came on the opening day of the India Aviation 2010 exhibition, a five-day civil aviation exhibition.

The plane, a two-seater Kiran MK-II built by state-run Hindustan Aeronautics, was part of a four-plane formation.

In January 2009 a similar aircraft went down in the southern state of Karnataka, killing its lone pilot

    A video of Swamy Nithyananda’ having sex with a top tamil actress was broadcasted on Sun news live and has shocked people across India.

    In Nithyananda’s scandal video, he can be seen getting intimate with an actress whose name happened to start with “R” leading to speculation if it is Ragasudha or Ranjita.

    The video was broadcasted on the famous tamil channel called SUN TV and the Tamil actress’ face was masked in the video. People have now called Nithyananda a fraud for making people believe that he is a Swami.

    Nithyananda is supposed to be a Swami (spiritual person) and this shocking video of him in bed with an actress has only shown how some people take the common person’s faith for granted.

    It still has to be verified if this is the truth or a scam.


    • I will appreciate if you also throw some light on the case of Kalki Bhagawan,which probably is not different from this Swami.Tamil Mallus are already famous for such Indian culture.

      Long live Indian culture.


  2. THIS IS NATURAL TO HAPPEN AS INDIA GETS EITHER READY MADE THINGS FROM OTHER COUNTRIES OR BUYS THE TECHNOLOGY .EVEN NUCLEAR WEAPONS TECHNOLOGY OF INDIA IS NOT INDIGENIOUS.WHILEAS A KASHMIRI ENGINEER CONCEIVED THE DESIGN OF A TANK WHICH CAN WORK AS USUAL LIKE NORMAL TANKS BUT IT CAN FLY AS WELL AS SWIM AND ACT LIKE A SUBMARINE.HE HAS USED THE NEW DESIGN OF HELICOPTER WITHOUT BLADES,SINGLE THIN CHAIN ON EITHER A SINGLE/MULTIPLE WHEEL SPECIALLY DESIGNED FOR DIFFERENTFUNCTIONSANDMUCHMORE


    • ROTFLMAO


  3. This is what great india is all about.
    Junk made to look nice by cosmetics……..


    • Good. I’m glad it makes you feel superior. Keep on feeling superior. It’s good for us when you guys underestimate everything.


      • Actually it is the other way around. We have overestimated you. We overestimated you after the parliment drama and rhrn after the Bombay drama. You Hindus can only kill innocent defenceless prople in Kashmir and Gujarat. But when it comes to facing an actual nuclear power you people piss in your pants…or is it dhiti you low cast dark ugly Hindus use these days?


      • We are superior to the low cast people you are!


      • @Shah

        You must be such a proud Muslim and a brave warrior, using such dirty language for an unknown person on Internet… By calling them ‘low caste’ you show your own true colors… Looks like the greatness of Islam has not rubbed off on you…


  4. Note that this Plane is Made in India and had Only 3 Crashes in its over 12 Years of service in the aerobatics Team.
    The Plane has been in service since 1970s.


  5. also, this is an naval acrobatics show,

    indian naval pilots are taught to take their airplane to the limits of their envelope unlike PAF which just takes off and lands.

    even PAF does not have an acrobatics team right?


  6. ask.jeeves is a sore loser. thats why he relies on ignorance to keep his false pride intact.


    • sorry. but its the truth. u know it 🙂


  7. By publishing this piece on an unfortunate accident, have you even lost a basic human decency of respect for human life? You gloating over the fact that an ‘Indian’ plane crashed? Is that all that gives you satisfaction now that otherwise your army cannot touch Indian planes?

    Ridiculous how you can derive satisfaction even from death- the pilots or those injured did not do anything bad to you, if your beef is with Indian govt and military!

    God is watching you…


    • Oh you are ripping my heart apart! Give me a Break and say the same thing on your own forums when your country talks of waging wars killing innocent people in Gujrat, Orissa & Kashmir, The topic is simply to highlight India’s failures & counter their propaganda of posing to be a wanna be super power!

      And yeah MM ALAM was just lucky with the 5 IAF planes he shot down!


    • We can’t touch instaed just blow your planes out of existence like one M A Alam did!.Save trying to be a decent human being that does you no justice!


  8. It’s a shame that people from India n Pakistan feel great to throw stones at each other. I wonder why can’t we act human? It’s a shame. Look at the ways our competitors have progressed and compare them where we are. Nonsense politicians and western powers just used us to keep their houses shining and alive.
    It’s only the common man who suffers most(whether from India or Pakistan). there is no one who could stop us if both these countries help each other to fight terrorism and promote education. We are fighting for over 60 years now and would fight for over 600 years like kids.. You need to realize the basics. Concentrate on improving urself first rather than the society. Don’t ignite people just for the sake of showing your shallow nationalism.
