Aero India 2009 - Feb 11-15 - YELAHANKA, Bengaluru
Thought I'd start this thread. Saw it in the Newspapers sometime back and there's an article on today's editions as well. I had the opportunity of attending the Aero India 2005. It was a great experience. The best part was I and my brother stepped in about 30 minutes before the closing time and believe it or not we had the pleasure of speaking to American F15 Pilots one on one (They apparently flew down from the Alaskan Base with a refuel over Saudi Arabia or Japan i don't quite remember). Also had a chat with a Su 30MKI Pilot & Co-pilot. Quite an experience.
Any one who is planning to visit, brace yourself for some heavy Crowds. A few of my friends who were there in the early hours complained that they couldn't get close to the Beauties or the Pilots. I am adding a few pictures which I took. That time I had to be content with a Fuji S5000 (6 MP). But this time I am going armed with a Nikon D90 (12.3 MP). Just wondering If I can scam a 'Print Media' badge maybe they'll let me get into the Cockpit of one of those.
Hope you liked the Pics. I Cropped a few of em to fit in the window.
