Re: Picture of MIG 29 K Single Seat for Indian Navy

MiG-29K & KUB look the same externally( same canopy type too). The dual seat KUB has a seat in the back for the trainee pilot. In the single seat K, that seat is replaced by other equipment(?).

Re: Aircraft Recognition

The Libyan AF did operate some F-5A/Bs until 1969. These are Libyan AF F-5s in old Royal Libyan AF markings(not the present green roundels/finflash). The serial number of the one of the F-5s in that pic is 22553.

I asked him if these airframes were to be upgraded to SU-30KN standards and sold to Belarus AF. Su-30K were ...

Re: Indian Military Aviation

sandesh, I heard stories about 224 being re-raised. your post confirms it. But I am sure this happened only in the last six to eight weeks or so. Yeah and possibly with those newly built Jaguars by HAL. Quote from the article titled "Sanctity of Military Tradition" in V/2008 : It is howev...

Re: Indian Military Aviation

Has anyone read the latest issue of Vayu(V/2008)? In one of the articles, it is mentioned that the No.224 Sqdn flies the Jaguar now(after retirement of MiG-23MFs) and that the No.2 Sqdn was number plated years ago. Can anyone shed more light on this?
