singacork must be angry that Singapore is wasting money on these planes.

LoL the cantos

Taiwan crashed an F-5 followed by an F-16 just weeks apart last month. What is your point?

And before that, Chinese crash a fighter jet due to bird strike. They didn't say the plane model.

Between the F-16 is the most numerus aircraft in military service.

These things happened more often then you think due to the nature of their operation.

I think the previous contention is between Pryuen and butters on Chinese fighter crashes due to underpowered engines.

Taiwan's planes are badly maintained is well-known. Singapore is so careful that they dare not fly their planes too much for saving money and maintenance.
The attrition rates of US planes due to imperialistic bragging and bad maintenance is also well-known.

LoL butters

butter couldn't be more wrong. Singapore with a smaller population military has a military budget of USD14.62 in 2019 bigger than those of Taiwan at USD13.99billion.

70% of air crashes are due to pilot judgment errors. The rest are mainly maintenance. I do know of design flaws with some aircrafts.
