Re: Su-30: News and Discussion

Dmurphy ji, its possible that the canards are parallel to the line of sight of the photographer. Exactly ! If you look in the pic below, one has to really go looking to find them due to the angle from which it was shot in respect to position of the canards. http://cdn-www.airliners.net/aviation-pho...

Re: C-17s for the IAF?

well they've been in Iraq & Af-Pak for ages now, we never saw em before so i doubt that this is a pit-stop.
Actually it would be more of a detour rather than a pitstop to come to BOM.

Another reason ............?

the condor was not designed primarily as a military transport and is not exactly better at that job than the C-17 which is a superlative a/c indeed if we ignore its price.
