This is a beauty. Drag and drop picture into a new window to see in bigger size. I am going to attempt to identify some of the pilots. Someone please correct me if I am wrong. If folks can recognize and identify the other pilots, it would be great. All the pilots in this picture have retired by now.

https://twitter.com/Chopsyturvey/status ... 7858168833 ---> The first eight Indian Air Force pilots who trained in France on the Mirage 2000 in 1984-85. The aircraft turned the tide of the war in Kargil and now 34 years later was still the chosen platform for the great "12 aircraft" Balakot Strike.

2) Third from right is Air Marshal Padamjit Singh Ahluwalia (Retd)

Wow ! What a picture! The clean lines of a Mirage-2000 are truly the most perfect lines that could have been drawn for a fighter. Will always remain my favourite airplane of all time!

yes seems like some hardcore collector who was selling stuff @ LIMA.
The links at the end have many patches worth archiving. Didn't post individual pics would make things very long.

Another set of drool-worthy snaps. Desi OSINT propaganda folks time to spam these all over.

Source: Kesar from the setting sun over the deserts of Rajasthan, signifies sacrifice, courage and valor of IAF and promises to bring new hopes and new beginnings the following morning. Resting here, is the old and trusted spearhead of IAF's heli transport, the Mi-17 1V.

Image

Source:There are some compositions around which one can create some stories. When I panned along the IAF's super Hercules, never imagined that any other object in the frame will try to take away my attention. Well, here it is. The AKASH, our own SAM on the lunch pad, pulled away all my attention from the Super Hercules. Quite unintentional though. Teaches me a lesson in life. We tend to ignore so many secondary aims and destinations in life while chasing around the main aim or destination. Explorers, travelers and inquisitive minds can better explain what I mean.

Image

Source:Fulcrum, Flare and Falak in one frame.. Could not have asked more from the recently concluded Vayushakti. It appears that the Fulcurm is attempting to jump over Chanda Mama to reach out glory, the glory of achievement.. During my childhood days, mother use to point at Moon to identify for me the imaginary figure of a mother holding a baby on moon. And babies when they grow up and get a chance to recreate similar stories around beloved moon, it is quite heartening to rewind those childhood memorie

Vishal, an excellent photo - which this is - reflects the mind of the photographer. You obviously know how to visualize a photo, before taking it and that is reflected in the photograph. Beautiful shot and amazing angle. Just gorgeous. Kudos to you!

While riding to this spot I saw a large boneyard and one particular aircraft particularly caught my attention. I almost instantly lost my sayyam causing the convoy to halt and just had to run rings around it irrespective of the locked gates and what have you. Can't say more :oops:
