We should perhaps ask the author about the IRBIS radar, he should know.

I say it's worth buying it just for the 308 full-color photoos alone. Rest is bonus and free maal...

Hi All,

I am working on an Indian price for desi jingos.

Please watch this space.

There won't be a COD option available.
You have to buy online at www.anveshan.com or by DD/At Par Cheque or cash in Mumbai.

Cheers

Hey Kaps:

I've made plenty of contributions to the good Simon's retirement fund ... so I guess it's OK for me to make one to yours!!

Count me in. :D Regards

Hi Kapil,
After the wonderful CC you provided when I purchased the Aero India DVD and the surprise "extra" as well, count me in on this when it becomes available.

Thanks,
Vinay

Jagan,

Does this mean that you have already received your copy before the rest of us foot-soldiers?

And now you are teasing us with scanned images!!! :D

I guess rank has its privileges... :wink:

Vivek I wish!

I only got those two images from Simon and Phil and I have no idea what is inside. I am in the same boat as you guys.

haric, will post if i get any pictures but right now - nothing more than the cover with me.

rrao, It should be available thru kapils site via post. but i doubt if any local bookstores will carry it.

brando, it should be available via simons website.

Do NOT like the cover.

Without "MKI" on it, it degrades the air craft and all the effort that went in to make it happen!!! Grrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr

Besides I would like to see a TOC for the book.

But that is one spectacular photograph. Wonder how it was taken. Maybe someone had to hang upside down and crane his neck while being buffeted by 500 kmph winds to do that?

Each BRF member needs to be given a free "evaluation copy" of this book. Otherwise Phil and Simon should get banned from BRF for disorderly conduct :D

Of course. Don't you know that we are just past the inauspicious "ashada" month? We are barely into "shrawan" (sawan?)
