    Two crashing at once , whats the probability of that ? unless its a mid air collision . Besides would we need an investigation of two aircrafts collided , i mean would you not know it instantly ?

    Most likely a formation mid air collision.... just a few seconds of inattention will do it.

    so that's the reason why Indian army got interested in F/A 18 super hornets.. the ability to go down like Mirages ... strange way to look at things..

    there is a level of "Chut!y@pp@"..you're beyond of it..

    1. Indian Army doesn't operate jet fighters.
    2.F-18 was out of the race of MMRCA long long ago.Rafale got selected,if you don't know.
