NDTV Documentary and Vishnu's report on Red-Flag video

Postby Vishnu » 04 Oct 2008 21:28

Hi ... I was at the Red Flag Exercises recently which saw the participation of the Indian Air Force. My documentary airs at 9:30 pm IST this coming Tuesday (October 7) on NDTV 24x7. It should repeat later in the week as well.

I will update all of you in case there is a change in schedule.

The documentary features lots of footage of the Sukhois, Ils etc ... and of our air warriors.

Thanks

excellent stuff,NDTV & vishnu kudos,production quality is so so good,.Its extremely satisfying to see US AIR FORCE personnel speak so highly of indian air force.vishnu u could have added something on RAFALE too since it wasnt there in the last JET SET ,where u flew gripen ,f-16,f/a-18e,and mig-35,,,anyways great congrats buddy,,it was great to see the senior officers of IAF putting the responsibility on the ROOKIE YOUNG GUNS ,,those guys performed too well in such high profile international war game like RED FLAG

great work vishnu ! just wish it was a bit longer than 20 odd minutes.

watching you perspiring like a fountain in the programme made me realise the condition the IAF crew worked in for all those days ! kudos to them and also to you and your crew.

Hi Vishnu. Please let us 'Abhaga' people have that documentary. Can someone upload it on youtube so that NDTV less people can watch it too.

Cheers....

Yeah, you are right, this sucks man.

I am so damn pissed at NDTV right now. Why they don't show things, what they write in their schedule.

Sorry guys ... thats the name of the game ... Cutting into the repeat of the programme for a Kirsten/Kumble press conference a day after Ganguly quit is bound to take precedence over Red Flag ...

Quite frankly ... there is very little space for documentaries and the like in our programming ... its news, news and news ...

Fingers crossed .. you should be able to see the repeat on Sunday ...

Cheers

U know the best solution for this is Shiv to upload the file he recorded so that we can download it and view it. :D
