    On 6 August 2009, a Gripen from F 17 Kallinge belly-landed after a routine mission and skidded off the runway. A minor fire broke out, but it was soon put out by the airbase fire brigade. The cause is believed to be pilot error. The pilot escaped unharmed, and could walk away from the aircraft. SHK will investigate the incident.

    The landing gears got stuck and he had to land without wheels and it went of the runway.
    Here we have a PAF pilot who land with gears stuck with both fuel tanks great job excellent landing.

    Do you suppose that could possibly be because air forces in Western nations (notably withing NATO) fly their jet moreoften and/or more intensely than (most) air forces of Eastern Nations? Not to mention flying combat missions.

    Please correct me if I am wrong but Pakistan, India, China, Singapor, Indonesia, Taiwan etc, and then there are Middle Eastern nations Saudi Arab, Egypt, Jordan and even includ Isreal give less flying hr to there pilots then the West. Not to mention Pakistan, India, Iran, Taiwan, China, and Isreal are on stand by for war almost 365 days a year. Personally I have to disagree with you on this sir

    This confirms what I suggested?

    Anyway, the point was that you cannot derived conclusions about the quality of aircraft from the number of incidents/accidents alone. You need to correlate their occurrance with important causal factors such as the amount of maintenance, the number of flight hours etc.
