Hope they can put some sensors/jammer on that rail as well as holding the missile, similar to the Gripen
that something is called good civic sense and better waste management.relatives in the air force have confirmed that it was Thunder B and was hit be a bird during final approach۔ something needs to done about birds around runways...
agreed. our people need to grow the heck up! A good start was this Eid ul Adha when the PAF made public service ads advising people living around air bases to ensure cleanliness after animal sacrifices so that the animal waste won't attract birds that can be dangerous to the PAF aircrafts which are assets of the people and for their defense.that something is called good civic sense and better waste management.
the way garbage is thrown out in the open attracts birds.
its a total mindset about cleanliness that needs to be changedin our society that will never happen.
a short term solution is to make all area near landing approach outof bound. have the dumping sites moved.
otherwise no amount of installing bird shooters will ensure full safety.
any permanent preventive measure will be cheaper than losing a jet. but our PAF leadership has habit of never learning.
recal we lost F16 due to hogs crossing runway because the geniuses thought it was expensive to erect boundry wall or barb wire all alongthe base.
