~ Aero India 2013 ~

Am happy for having made to another edition of Aero India held at Bangalore. Off the 9 editions so far, I have missed one edition. This time though made it to the 2nd day of the event. 

The 9th edition was more of achieving self-reliance in the defence sector focused. LCH, Tejas MK I, Rustom UAV, Rudra showcased the indigenous capabilities of various Indian defence industries. However, the engine of Tejas MK I isn't indigenous. Time NAL does something about it to call it Indigenous.

There were performances from Dassault Rafale {which is still in pursuit for the huge deal from Indian Airforce}, USAF F16 {read that they flew from the Japan airbase}, Red Bull Racing {Radka Machova was the limelight of the press}, Rostum, Embraer, Sarang Team, Rudra, LCH, IAF's Sukhoi, Russian Knights {only on 4th & 5th days of the show}. Last but not least, Tiger Moth, Indian AirForce's first fighter has been maintained in mint condition.

My clicks from the 2nd Day of the Air Show. Hope you like them.

The only disappointment was I couldn't witness Russian Knights formations. They arrived only on the 3rd day of Aero India. They did put up a performance yesterday & today. Enjoy the performance of Russian Knights here.
