    Tarmak007 -- A bold blog on Indian defence: Tejas all set to log 2000th flight at Aero India
    [​IMG]
    Bangalore: The devotees of desi military technologies will have every reason to cheer during the upcoming air show, with India's Light Combat Aircraft (LCA) Tejas, likely to cross the 2000th test flight mark. In the last 11 years, Tejas variants have together clocked 1981 flights, logging over 1200 hours. However, aviation aficionados will miss the formation flight of Tejas on the inaugural day (Feb6), with the organisers deciding against it, sighting technical reasons.
    In an interview to Express, Aeronautical Development Agency (ADA)Director P.S. Subramanyamsaid that one aircraft fromthe Limited Series Production (LSP) phase and another from the prototype flight-line will be doing the flying displayduties on all five days of the show.
    “During last air show we had a formation flight of 5Tejas. This time, we are informed that there won't be any formation flights atall. However two Tejas aircraft will demonstrate various manouvering capabilities such as vertical loops, barrel rolls, low-speed flying, high-speed low-altitude flying and inverted flying,” Subramanyam.
    He said the visitors will have an opportunity to get up-close with the full-fledged updated cockpit of Tejas, loaded with all possible weapons.On the menu are an R-73 missile, laser-guided bombs, 1000 lb bombs, practice bombs and the beyond-visual range missiles Derby and Astra.
    “In addition to exhibiting our technological capabilities, ADA will unleash latest avionics suit for the IOC configuration. We shall put the spotlight on self-reliance India has achieved in designing anddeveloping combat airplanes,” Subramanyam said.
    The ADA chief said that the naval prototype (NP-1) of LCA will not be at the show this time. “Weare planning to have a 1:1 model of the NP-1,” he said.

    LSP and a prototype. It won't be particularly great. So no point if you are planning on comparing other aircraft to it.

    J-10? I don't think PLAF would allow that before they get J-10B.
    J-11? NO! The contract with Russia won't allow it. Even though we can replace the most of parts such as radar and engine, but the plane framework is till based Suhoi.
    JF-17? We would love to if our pakistan friends have no problem.

    But Rivalry apart INDIA-CHINA-PAKISTAN has to show some maturity even during height of cold war Soviet Union used to send its that time top fighter Mig-29 to France airshow ( NATO country)

    What is harm in display in Airshow , many delegation from other countries will visit there will be good business opportunity

    Are we going to Dog fight LCA & JF-17(If it visits Aero India) ? no right:thumb:
