The Western nations say that Eastern products are not as good as theres yet for some reason they have more aircraft crashes then any Eastern nation I can think of more then China even
Wow ... was that some sort of testing or accident?
Any way, seems like pilot did a good job.
Plane is intact so pilot did good job. The question is why is he off the runway?
@ haider,.................It would be great if u can give more details about this unfortunate incident.
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 pilot saved the plane though; thats commendable...
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.

Lucky Pilot, Sir Muradk.Thanks god the Fuel Tanks did not explode.
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.
at which year pia did landeed like that
