A Weekend of Fun Following AeroIndia 2007

Global Aviation Brings Show To Public

After three days of strutting their stuff to India's defense industry, global aviation players brought the show to the public at Yelahanka Air Force Station in Bangalore this weekend.

Even with some glitches, the public was enthralled with aerial displays, the Surya Kiran aerobatic team, and a vast array of large foreign aircraft (read, F-18, F-16) making an impact in the world of aviation, reported The Hindu.

Local aviation enthusiasts were also taken by the Sukhoi-30MKI, MiG-29K and Gripen Fighter Aircrafts.

Things to work on for next time: According to reports in The Hindu, even air show veterans who left for the Air Base early, were caught in amazing traffic jams, spoiling the morning itinerary for many who had to wait for evening displays.

Children under 15 and their parents were also disappointed, as the young people were barred from part of the show; aerial and static displays were all that they could view.

And with any large event, children were separated from parents, the food courts and soft drink stalls were packed, and the tarmac was full with people squatting, walking, and watching.

AeroIndia 2007 saw participation from 500 companies, including 275 foreign firms; among the heavy hitters were Lockheed Martin and Boeing.

With India's planned acquisition of 126 multi-role combat aircraft, reported Chennai Interactive Business Services, Lockheed Martin elevated its pitch for the F-16, Boeing for its F-18, and Gripen International for its new generation JAS-39 fighter.
