AeroIndia

Aeroplanes, my first love. Simply can't take my eyes away from anything that flys. I still can't believe it. How come.......

AeroIndia 2007, every 2 year event in B'lore. And, I seem to have attended all of them. This time with a camera. We were seated almost at the end/begining of the runway. And, it indeed was challenging to capture them. Will take sometime to putup the labels. Yes, missed Anand, my aerospace expert.


















LCA - Light Combat Aircraft - The pride of India. You must meet anybody who has been remotely connected with it....chaps in various defense labs in B'lore....and the pride with which they gush!!!! Saras from NAL (?)
Sukhoi - dream machine - now with IAF.
My much wanted shot of the day. The orange fire from F-16. Nothing to beat this fighter interms of manouverability; swift movements.

Nice Close ups of Metal Birds.

Akash said...

Well, the morning display's didn't have the Kiran's coming out into the sky. The Saarang's did their dance!

There was Akash, there were Kiran and then there was SUnand i mean SU .
guys it is indeed a matter of pride to have a LCA , 'BUT' dont you think this is far tooo behind the big birds, and even now the LCA not completly installed, think this is a project running for past 20 years, or so,

How many of these have already crashed? For once, I'm not joking. I am quite serious! This is something that has been bothering me for a while now!
