IAF to send crashed Mirage 2000’s black box to France for further investigation


Days after two Indian Air Force (IAF) pilots were killed in a Mirage 2000 trainer aircraft crash in Bengaluru, the IAF is sending the airplane’s black box to France to obtain further details about the accident.

The development comes at a time when families of the deceased pilots, Squadron Leaders Samir Abrol and Siddartha Negi, are demanding accountability in the incident. Investigating the airplane’s black box would provide more details about the mishap. Samir Abrol’s widow blamed authorities for allowing the use of “outdated” machines in a poem she wrote on Instagram three days ago.

“The black box is being sent to France for getting full details of the crash,” sources in Air Force told India Today. Read More
