RAM, thanks for the nice pictures.

But would you mind putting a series of pics in a single post, so we don't have a fvckton of posts all on the same topic. So, pics of the IGI, for example, would be in two or three different posts, using up the image limit of 10 pictures-per-post. It just makes it faster browsing and more convenient and concise while loading.

Thanks, and cheers for all the good work once again.

I love the new airports that are being built, but what's with the low ceiling height in our new terminals. We have huge buildings but our ceiling height is very low, this makes the terminal look small and constricted when it doesn't need to be.

I think the low ceiling height at places in the terminals is to be economical with air conditioning.

The airports at the metros have pretty high ceilings, tho. Including Bangalore, Delhi, Mumbai and Hyderabaad.

Plus the pics you're seeing on the Trichy airport for the low ceilings are for an area that's right near the lobby and ticket counters, where an artificial ceiling's been installed for those hangin' display televisions and for better lighting. You can kinda see that on the fourth pic in me last post, where the ceiling tapers off and a new ceiling begins on the right. ,,,,,,,,,,,,,

i think these low ceiling ones are not newly constructed but ones which have been renovated. the ones which are newly constructed delhi, bombay, bangalore and hyderabad have this huge space in between.

Are there any pics or videos in the messages above on this page? - If so I can only see a blank space instead of any picture or video.

Ah Yes Ram! - This was vt-ala's video that I tried to post here along with some pictures but wasnt able to due to protocol restrictions as I am new here - Loved the above video and these were my observations...

-DIAL is certainly taking it's eco-friendly credentials seriously. Normally the flying escort for such landmark flights is a noise polluting, fuel guzzling, carbon credit chomping airforce fighter plane - a cruel bir of war designed to kill / main. DIAL instead chose to use a bird of err.... peace (ok trained doves are not so easy to come by so a trained crow will do). It even circumambulated the incoming guest exemplifying our sacred 'Athithi Devo Bhava'. If you have any doubts please revisit the video.

I inferred that the welcome escort was remotely controlled by the IAF BBJ sometimes used as the Bharathiyya Air Force 1 on the adjoining taxiway. :!:

- Humour aside, T3 looks so impressively long in this video - note how it seems to go on and on as the camera pans to follow the white whale.

- Loved the dramatic gusts of thrust reverser spray accompanied by the rather quiet receeding engine cresendo.

- The pilot Mahindra Scorpio and the A380 piercing the curtain of welcoming water reminded me of flower curtain parting to reveal the bride's/groom's face in Bharathiyya weddings.

- Love the close ups of the attaching of the aerobridge and the mechanical arm swinging in to touch the fuselage.

- The nose wheel doors of the A380 look absolutely gigantic -much wider than the nose gear width.

- Composition of the shot from inside the tractor's cabin and from outside gave a feel of how powerful it must be to seemingly effortlessly push the beast back.

- Fabulous angles obviously taken by an insider - many thanks for this and the unique perspectives from which this video was taken - otherwise not seen by aviation aficionados like us.

- Gives a new angle to the modernity and the advanced featurs of T3 - loved the feel of the squeaky clean, contemporary servicing pipes underbelly and the precision stop of the nose wheel at the gate - impressive.

- Glimpses of peoples reaction added a warm humane touch to this well edited video. Also indicated how well insulated the interiors are from the outside elements - noise, dampness etc.

- Loved the dramatic circular drive around the departing superjumbo not to mention the sparkling runway lights on the underbelly of the shiny bird.

- Overkill of flying escorts (trained resident crows- birds of err... peace) as the whale jet takes off. I know this is a fond baraathi farewell to the landmark flight at a new Indian terminal but it can prove a needless distraction to the pilots. There are more effective methods of population control methinks :).


All in all a fabulous video well edited with rare angles the average joe/janardhan may not probably get to see again. A gracious thanks to vt-ala.
