The father of Indian army soldier Ravi Kumar receives an Indian flag and the uniform of his son from another soldier before Kumar's cremation at Bishna, about 22 kilometers (14 miles) from Jammu, India, Friday, Sept. 30, 2011. Ravi Kumar was among eight people who died in three days of fierce fighting between rebels and government forces in Indian-controlled Kashmir.

In this picture, I see that the new P8-I has a "Window" that is close to a size of a door.
Can some one ID why an ASW would have such a big window?


Observer window

There are five side-facing operator stations and two observer stations with a picture window, through which visual checks can be made, especially in low-flying, search and rescue operations.

Besides this, I can imagine that through this window one has a better view towards the wing-areas, including engines in case it is needed.

I am sorry, but that sure looks like a PLA/PAP contingent to me. The picture could be from any number of floods in China that sees PLA/PAP deployed for relief operations.

Indian Army chief in Kashmir Lt. Gen. Syed Ata Hasnain salutes during a wreath-laying ceremony of soldier Ravi Kumar, at an army base in Srinagar, India, Friday, Sept. 30, 2011. Kumar was killed Wednesday during a raid at a militant hide-out in Kralpora, a remote area about 130 kilometers (80 miles) north of Srinagar. At least eight people have died in three days of fierce fighting between rebels and government forces in Indian-controlled Kashmir, officials said Wednesday.

Sum Sir,
Nothing great on this year's show, except for the C-130's.. They lead 2 formation flights of transport aircrafts.. I did miss the starting of the parade.. One with 2 AN32's on both its wing and another with 2 AN32s and 2 Do228's in a little boy formation.. Live fist has posted some pics of the flying events of the parade here.

This RAW ghost 707's legend just wont die http://forum.scramble.nl/viewtopic.php? ... b0#p382302
A friend thought he saw it up around DEL.

Called-up a mate who's in-the-know & he said that its still alive

Me: Does it have any 'fixed' time movements or kabhi-bhi?
Him: Nope, nothing is ever fixed. But goes and comes under full emergency rules of airfield. Accorded high priority
I would avoid being seen with a cam around it. I was traced down once to my desk and asked to handover photos

Image Image

Me: Well i stay in Mumbai, so i'm far enough but will hold-on to your advice Image

I agree that the aircraft flies out once in a while.

How do I arrive at the conclusion ? - just look at the historical imagery in Google Earth. The only way to prove it is not flying is to say that it is being moved in and out of the hangar frequently which really doesnt make sense!

There is still no clear picture of the aircraft .. here is one taken from the NOIDA highway.. not many out there showing the IAF roundels and finflash placement..

Jagan saar, are you sure it is the NOIDA Highway? There are two in Noida, the Noida-Greater Noida Expressway and the DND, both of which are far from Indira Gandhi Airport. Did you mean the Gurgaon Expressway?

I have seen K2899, at different locations in past 20 days alone. But haven't seen it moving ever!

And yes, I think Jagan sir meant NH8. And ARC aircrafts are easily visible from different vantage points around T1.

IIRC from newspaper reports ARC had 2 B-707s for 'experimental' purposes for ages but hardly flew. One was supposed to have been decommissioned a while back and cannibalized to service the other aircraft. Maybe after the hangar roof collapse wrote off the Gulfstream III making ARC bereft of ELINT capabilities, these 'experimental' birds have become a priority!

Btw the gulfstream III supposed to have been written off has surfaced again! viewtopic.php?f=3&t=3040&p=482315&hilit=ARC#p482315 Telegraph has reported this but their site doesn't archive the pages so can't give a link for it. The tail number is seen in pic 1 & pic 2 So did they resuscitate the aircraft? Mysterious are the ways of our intelligence agencies :D

^^ Find it hard to believe that such a large org like RAW and ARC have just 2 old B-707s + 1 Gulfstream-III as their ELINT fleet!! Surely, they have to have more aircraft than that.

Ah, yes...forgot about the Gajraj. IIRC, one of them was in the news last year after it had a near miss with a civilian craft somewhere in the NE.
