MiG-29 - Mr. Chiber

Good evening Gentlemen,

the Mikoyan-Gurevich MiG-29 is such a good-looking plane.
One of the more succesful pilots is G. Chiber from India, who scored twice in 1999. Can anybody tell me his first name ?

Cheers,

Michael

Leendert will become famous soon enough
Re: MiG-29 - Mr. Chiber

It seems he (Chibber) claimed 2 x PAF F-16s in 1999.

Good afternoon Leendert,

that's interesting.
He seems to be the only Indian pilot who scored in the MiG-29:
