:(( Didn't even hear or see it. Haven't seen one in ages. Looks like they avoid CBD side.

It must have taken off eastwards and landed east to west. Whitefield/Sarjapur areas. I am west of the airport. I used to see plenty of them last year.

Now the Pakis will fly a Bundar with an arrestor hook? :rotfl:

NO Official news of the bird having taken off and landed successfully. No TV channel websites or major newspapers are showing this as yet :((

Those four were naval powers.

Add China and India to that list.

Delete UK in the near future. Am not sure where Russia stands at the moment - they have the tech, but do they have a projected need?

Looks like most first flights happen with the bird taking off on runway 27 and then continuing out on runway heading and clearing Bangalore, carrying out the tests and approaching for landing on Runway 27 again.

There is seriously a lack of info flowing out (when compared to LSP 7). Either Tarmaak makes that big a diff or..... there is a clamp down on the photos and such (that is mentioned in Tarmaak site). Not many news sites are carrying the news also. Sad :(

Nice to see that Capt. Maolankar was given the honor of taking the bird up on its maiden flight!

Congrats to all involved in making this first flight a great success!

Guru's..

Will there be a designated take off and landing distance for the NLCA flight to be deemed successful ? Or is the current flight to make sure that airframe is flight worthy ?

The interesting point of the Official release is

The test flight was carried out with landing gear extended as a routine practice during the maiden flight.


This means the the reports that "permission" was not given to retract the landing gear due to "safety issues" is pure DDM or psyk warefare..

IndiaToday DDM reports Naval version of LCA Tejas takes off successfully
Earlier, the Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO) had successfully test fired Agni-V on April 19 and launched Risat-1 exactly a week later.

Actually IIRC LSP-7 on its first flight did retract its landing gear - so confidence on the landing gear of the AF variant is high. Not so for the Navy variant. All in good time.

This is a good milestone to reach. Testing this variant out fully will be interesting.
