Wife Of Late Pilot Killed In Mirage 2000 Crash May Soon Join Air Force
New Delhi: Garima Abrol, wife of late Indian Air Force (IAF) pilot Samir Abrol who was killed in a Mirage crash earlier this year, has cleared the Services Selection Board (SSB) in Varanasi and may soon be eligible to join the Indian Air Force.
According to a report by ANI, Garima Abrol has cleared Services Selection Board from Varanasi and may get an opportunity to join IAF’s academy in Dundigal in Telangana.
In February 2019, Squadron Leaders Samir Abrol and Siddartha Negi died when a Mirage 2000 trainer aircraft crashed in Bengaluru. Though the pilots made a bid to eject, they were caught in the flames as the plane crashed with a huge explosion.
In the days following the heartbreaking accident, Garima Abrol wrote a moving post on social media slamming IAF authorities for using “outdated” equipment to risk the lives of its personnel.
