    This is not the first incident where a young pilot has embraced shahadat during training in mushak aircraft. Maybe I’m unaware of many underlying facts but I remember that this aircraft “mushak” has been serving our forces since we were kids. Therefore based on apparent facts, I think it it is time for Army Aviation’s responsible senior officers to think about replacing this aircraft with a secure and new trainer aircraft(s).
