An Indian MiG 21 just went down… again. Ouch!
Ever since the infamous Abhinandan incident, the Indian Air Force just can’t seem to control what’s happening to their jets. There has been a bunch of crashing lately, along with some silly balloon incidents and whatnot.
Well, another Indian MiG 21 Jet just crashed a while ago and honestly, it seems like things are pretty much out of their control
A training MiG 21 jet crashed in the Indian city of Gowalior in Madhya Pradesh earlier today. There were two pilots on board the aircraft, a Group Captain and a Squadron Leader. Both of them ejected the aircraft in time and are said to be safe in the incident.
The aircraft is said to have been on a routine training mission when it crashed earlier today, around 10am
According to India’s Minister of State for Defence Shrupad Naik the Indian Air Force has lost a total of 27 aircraft, including 15 fighter jets and helicopters, in crashes since 2016. This number includes the downed MiG-21 of Abhinandan Varthaman during India’s adventures in trying to “surprise” Pakistan on February 27.
Social media was set ablaze as soon as news of the Indian MiG 21 going down spread

Many Indians are extremely embarrassed at their own air force
#mig21 is not worth of participating in war. Airforce totally failed to deter the enemy in Feb conflict..but airforce did not give any satisfactory answer why they used might instead of sukhoi even for expected retaliation..

Now my affirmation of belief that MIG 21 is used only to teach pilots '' How to eject properly " is getting more rock solid. 😣

Some are calling for the Indian MiG 21 aircraft to be grounded to avoid further embarrassing moments like these

Naturally, Pakistanis are finding this incident quite funny and they’ve got jokes on the ready
Pakistani sense of humor during tough times like tense cricket matches and protests and whatnot has been appreciated by Indians themselves in the past. Looks like they got a taste of this caustic sense of humor yet again following this MiG 21 going down.
Indian pilots have lot of experience in ejection rather then flying a plane

Congratulations! Another #Mig21 crashed@IAF_MCC should ask their pilots 2 watch movies where they successfully do surgical strikes in Pakistan
In reality they can only produce pilots like #Abhinandan who recieve fantastic slaps & cup of tea from their neighbours! pic.twitter.com/BfxuUvVLTR
