    Squadron leader Bundela fighting for his life
    Shruti Verma Singh

    Thursday, June 13, 2002 (Pune):

    It's a story of courage despite the toughest adversity. Three years ago, squadron leader P K Bundela shot down a Pakistani Atlantique surveillance plane when it crossed into the Indian air space in Gujarat. But today, he is fighting for his own life after ejecting from a MiG-21.

    Despite two major surgeries, the 32-year-old fighter pilot, who is on a life support machine, is paralysed neck down. Doctors at the Military Command hospital in Pune say that the only reason Bundela is still alive is because he simply refuses to give up.

    "There is always hope. Even now he is in a state of spinal shock. We can give a period of up to two to three years in which he can improve. But these things take time," said Colonel A K Dubey, doctor treating Squadron leader Bundela.

    Squadron leader Bundela became a national hero when on August 10, 1999 he was called in to intercept a Pakistani Atlantique surveillance plane which had entered Indian air space in the Rann of Kutch.

    Bundela is the only IAF pilot to have shot down a Pakistani aircraft since the 1971 war.

    Bundela's last flight as a fighter pilot was on April 4 this year -- ironically on the same variant of the MiG he flew in 1999. But this time the engine of the MiG-21 stalled while he was flying at supersonic speeds. Despite all his efforts, the engine didn't re-start as it is designed to do and he was forced to eject. However, the ejection process itself was not clean and he struck a part of the cockpit as he exited the aircraft, which resulted in serious spinal cord injuries.

    Bundela's crash and a subsequent MiG-21 crash in Jallandhar in May in which seven people were killed on the ground prompted the Air Force to temporarily halt training operations on the variant of the MiG-21 which Bundela was flying.

    All these MiGs have since been cleared for full service. Squadron leader P K Bundela may have lived, but more than 40 trained and qualified fighter pilots have been killed in the last decade while flying MiG-21s. However, the top brass of the Air Force refuses to accept the aircraft is outdated, poorly manufactured and prone to disaster.

    All people are equal, but some are more equal than others. We call these "corporations."

    Figures, their planes suck, their aero engineers suck and their pilots suck.

    Not my theory, but the FACT is they have the highest crash rate in the whole world!

      FACT - Pakistan has had its behind whipped in 3 wars with India. In one war, a record 90,000 Pakistani army cowards surrendered to India.

      FACT - India sliced Pakistan in half in 1971. http://www3.pak.org/gupshup/smilies/hehe.gif

          You little two timing bhookas...why don't you mention the name of the author of that article...its Gwyne Dyer who always presents anti pakistan view points, but our free press is not insecure and thus publishes these points of view for all to see.

          How pathetic...how absolutely moronic that your "national hero" shot down and un armed Pakistani plane inside Pakistani territory. Cowards. I hope this Bundela idiot dies after a lot of pain and goes straight to hell. Allah ki Laathi Be-Awaaz hai.

                      Talwar, plz stop with the personal attacks, you can make your point more effectively without them...

                      It was an internationally well known fact that this pilot who shot down the surveilance plane which was carrying people (though india says it was unmanned http://www3.pak.org/gupshup/smilies/smile.gif) was well in Pakistani airspace... India just retaliated since Pakistan brought down to of their planes in Pakistan... However, this pilot, like any other pilot in the world was following precise orders from his seniors, so I dont blame him for the PN aircraft crash... I blame the Indian Govt...

                      Now read the article carefully... What is the IAF doing? You say that you have poor pilots, but your quanity of aircraft make up for that... May I remind you this MIG didnt even power up the engines and that is what forced the pilot to eject? Even his ejection system didnt work properly.

                            To find out ur aukaat, lemme tell u the procedure.

                            make sure u have a mirror.

                            1. get up
                            2. take ur dhoti off (apni dhoti utaro)
                            3. stand right in front of the mirror and then bend over.
                            4. u will see ur aukaat in the mirror.

                            Goodluck http://www3.pak.org/gupshup/smilies/biggrin.gif

                              I have NEVER started a personal attack. You had two pakistanis, one sying "Cow pi$$ drinkers" referring to me and kumarakn and another calling us "bhookays"

                              It was an internationally well known fact that this pilot who shot down the surveilance plane which was carrying people (though india says it was unmanned http://www3.pak.org/gupshup/smilies/smile.gif) was well in Pakistani airspace.
                              If it is internationally well known, then can you please show me some evidence? India says that the plane was in our airspace at the point of shooting.
