India Friday mounted a search and rescue operation for an Indian Air Force plane that went missing with 29 people on board.In one of the worst disasters involving an AN-32 in India, 20 people on board died while three civilians were burnt to death when the plane crashed near a New Delhi airport in 1999 .And in 2013, all 20 people on board a military helicopter were killed when it crashed in northern India.Experts have warned India's delay in revamping its outdated military aircraft threatens national security, with some of the fleet virtually on their last legs.
