of course it is not a problem with FF/airliners.net but I have no idea what it could be. checked adblock, nothing there either.

Posted from facebook: "These are live shells fired by Pakistan army at the Tanot temple which never exploded"

More on the story here:

Tanot Temple

I remember reading somewhere that these shells were actually manufactured in India and the pakis got them after partition. If that is true then the whole incident is quite intriguing. Would love to get some clarification.

Thanks!

Just a another wasting of taxpayers money by her. She always love to do image portraying stuff, but never done anything significant thats commendable in her role as a prez.

I actually think its a good thing. Such jaunts gets her picture on the first page when pictures of the tanks without her end up somewhere in the middle of the newspaper. Gets kids' eyes. Besides shes not demeaning the services or anything.

Nice picture. Which gun is held by the soldier in the extreme left. Is he from the paratrooper regiment? What does 3 stars on the hat signify?

Gaur that is a controlled landing. he has knee pads (photo 1) and presumably elbow pads. The right hand is extended to break the fall in photo 2, as the left leg kicks up. In photo 3 the rifle is pointed up and head up as he "falls serially" like an expert - with the impact falling serially on arms, later the trunk and finally the legs. When I used to play football as a young man I was taught how to fall - but of to the side so that my weight came down serially on different parts of my body and I could be up again in a minute.

That man appears about 4X times as athletic as I was at my fittest, and will be ready to squeeze off a round in 4 seconds

notice the bottom of his shoes in the last pic. that too matches the theme. the designers have really gone into deep details. no more usual black bottom.

Shiv Saar,
You misunderstood me. I was not implying that the soldier was doing it wrong...how can I when I don't even how it is done right? It just looked beyond me...I am neither athletic enough to do this nor am I strong enough to absorb the resultant impact, sand and pads notwithstanding. Hence my silly comment that I would rather not be in his place.
I loved the soldier's athletism when I saw this pic which is why I posted it in the first place. :D

BTW..deleted my original comment in case it was inadvertently looking like sarcasm. :)

Hmm just noticed something. There is another sniper on the ground to the right side of the pic in picture 2. In picture 3 the end of a rifle is just visible on the left. Pic 2 and 3 may be different men diving into position.

In the first pic , top right corner ..seems another sniper is charging forward who is not in focus and seems blurred ...my personal opinion though :?: :?:
