Re: A taste of Aero India 2015 Big update.

Absolutely cracking set of shots of some very very tasty aircraft. India has such a diverse range of aircraft from so many manufacturers.

As for that MiG 21 , are those info stencils a new form of Stealth camouflage ??? Surely they could have found a bit more space for some more ???

Re: Deliveries

Irkut usually bring all their bits in the company An 12.This year they are having quite large outside exhibition stand /hall so maybe they might be using something a bit bigger?
The An12 does look nice in the Irkut Company livery.
