Additional Notes

Remarks: Flight Safety Note added: 0000-00-00
ON 06 Sep 09, Sqn Ldr KPS Dham (24514-R) F(P) was authorized to fly a Bison aircraft as a CAP in 4 + 3 Vs 3 mission. The aircraft was in 3 D/T configuration and also modified with SPP system (Anti Surge System). During initial engagement at an altitude of 3.5 KM on pressing missile firing button he experienced loss of thrust. On checking engine parameters, he noticed RPM winding down to flight idle and then again building up to 100% after a delay of 6 seconds with throttle lever stationary at full dry power. He also noticed ignition light illuminated on the failure warning panel. The sequence of RPM dropping and then rising again repeated. The pilot correctly identified this as a malfunction of Anti Surge System and promptly switched off the Anti Surge CB. He called off the mission and recovered the aircraft safely on priority. Sqn Ldr KPS Dham, despite his limited experience on type, displayed a keen sense of observation and a high degree of professionalism in preventing a possible incident/accident.
