Aero Show Bangalore 2009

Recently we had a great opportunity to witness the best Air Show in the world. With few of my friends, I reached the venue an hour before the commencement of Asia's Most Amazing Air Show held here in Yelahanka Air Force Station, Bangalore between 11-15Feb.

The exhibition has around 600 different business entities taking part from 26 countries in an area which covers 44,000 square meters, and hence the largest show in Asia. This is basically a Government organized show in association with Indian Air Force, Department of Space and DRDO. The first edition of this was in the year 1996 and was a great success and this is the 9th edition.

The highlight of course is the brilliant and acrobatic display by our aerobatics demonstration teams of Indian Air Force, Surya Kiran (meaning Sun Rays) and Sarang (meaning Peacock). And Surya Kiran needs no explanation, as it is renowned for its aerobatics world over and consists of worlds most dangerous dare devils in air and so is Sarang

Check out the pictures taken by my friend Shaiju Mohan. He is an awesome photographer (s/w engg by profession though). Check out a few of his 'coding with the camera' :)

Hello Greener Bangalore.

First off I appreciate you following my blog, always curious as to how you stumbled upon it?

Anyways I have definitely returned the favor. I have read a couple of your posts so far and like the fact that I can learn about a part of this world that I am completely ignorant about.

Cheers.

Hi,

Great photos. I've never been to an air show and don't know much about this, but wonder if the aircrafts use environmentally friendly fuel? Thanks, and I greatly appreciate your support of my blog- I came across yours through my sister CathM. Also my brother worked in Bangalore for some months and loved it.

All the best,
LJ

Thanks everyone for appreciating the pics...

Indolence is a delightful but distressing state; we must be doing something to be happy. Action is no less necessary than thought to the instinctive tendencies of the human frame.
