Bangalore: Nearly a hundred civilian and military aircraft will take part in a five-day international air show at the Indian Air Force station at the Yelahanka airbase on the outskirts of the city.
The seventh edition of the biennial international air show Aero India 2009 from February 11-15, 2009, is billed as Asia's largest. The Indian ministry of defence led show took off for the first time from the same venue in 1996. The event takes place once in two years, becoming now the world's fourth largest such show. The defence ministry, working along a slew of public sector and government bodies, hosts aviation majors from around the globe.
The five-day programme will include flight and static displays of nearly 100 modern range of civil and military aircraft from all over the world. Take your pick: latest fighter jets to maritime surveillance aircraft to unmanned aerial vehicles (UAV), from Israeli miniature UAVs to giant Russian transport planes that can carry a few trucks inside. Indian airmen will also showcase their skills with their colourful mindblowing aerobatics, a glorious dance in the skies. The February 2009 show will feature about 600 firms from both India and about 50 countries.
