Re: Indian Air Force News & Discussion - 15 Dec 2016

Guys....during a recent flypast by Blue Angels over Detroit to salute the first responders of Covid-19 --- a drone operator capturing the flypast came extremely close to one of the jets. I believe the drone was literally 2 feet away from the wing-tip of one of the F-18 Hornet. In such close formatio...

With current oil prices at historical low Russians are getting badly hurt. If we cant get q bargain price now from them we never will. Across all hardware platforms the primary objective of Putin will be to protect jobs rather than earning profit. Keep the factories, shipyards humming.

Also it is a trend that ships are perfect breeding ground for corona. Our ships keep on doing port calls. We probably need to make a careful observation of all such cases. USS Roosevelt is a perfect example. We don’t see a lot of cruise ship traffic so that is a savior.
