The sixth edition of the country’s biennial air show, Aero India 2007 will take off at Air Force Station, Yelahanka from Wednesday. By far the largest edition, the five-day show will reverberate to the roars of over 50 aircraft ranging from the tiny Hansa to the giant C-130 Hercules, to mean fighting machines like the Su-30MKI, F/A-18F Super Hornet, Gripen, F-16 Fighting Falcon, Light Combat Aircraft, MiG-35 and to sleek business jets like the Falcon and the Bombardier.
Impressive flying displays have been slotted for twice every day, with the highlight of the opening day undoubtedly being the flypast and the displays by the colourful Surya Kiran and Sarang aerobatic teams. They will perform on all five days.
The air show will have over 500 exhibitors (including 300 from 33 overseas countries) who have exhibited their wares and services in 11 hangars and outdoors, spread across an area of over 30,000 sq. m. Also in attendance will be 35 air force chiefs, and 40 official delegations along with their business teams.
