Yes might be best to wait a few decades :D

In India, Ministry of External Affairs spokesman Raveesh Kumar acknowledged the loss of a jet and its pilot.

He also said that an Indian plane had shot down a Pakistani fighter jet, and Indian ground forces observed it falling on the Pakistani side of the LoC. Pakistan denied any of its jets had been hit.

India's foreign ministry later issued a statement demanding the release of its fighter pilot and condemning the images shared by Pakistan of Wing Commander Abhinandan, describing them as a "vulgar display of an injured personnel".

From other releases and that Republic news channel The Indian side officially state they have lost a pilot and his photo has been put up on social media. India are also putting out news that a MiG-21 Bison pilot claims to have shot down a "Fighter Jet". Interesting to know how they have identified the type so quickly considering if it went down in Pakistan - even getting close up if you consider the options.

Mirage 3/5, Chendu F-7, JF-17 or F-16 :roll:
