It was a bright sunny day in Feb. The sky was painted in bright blue as the sun beamed upon my face, my gaze was locked onto the cloudless sky.The sun was shining gloriously and the spectacular performance was lined up to entertain the audience and showcase the new innovations and technologies in the aviation industry at the Aero Show Bangalore 2015.
A biennial air show and aviation exhibition organized by Defence Exhibition Organisation, Ministry of Defense, India.
The second largest air show in the world after Paris Air Show which was inaugurated by the Defence minister of India at Yelahanka, Bengaluru held from 18 to 22 Feb 2015.
We had booked our tickets from the Aero show site for the last day. Price per ticket for the general view was 650 INR. After getting stuck for more than an hour in traffic, we finally managed to reach the venue. Thousands of people had gathered to see the finale of the tenth edition of Aero Show. As we entered the gate we saw Indian Air Force helicopters flying past with Indian Tri Colour. The first show had just ended. We collected our tickets and went to the viewing arena which was an open field and people were scattered all around with umbrella, wearing hats and literally fighting for chairs 😛 😛
Despite the freaking hot weather and not a place to sit, we thoroughly enjoyed the show. It was a breathtaking display of air power and brilliant aerobatics by fighter jets and helicopters which included the Sukhoi-30, the Light Combat Aircraft (LCA) Tejas, the Advanced Light Helicopter (ALH) Dhruv and US Airforce F16.
Britain’s Breitling SkyWalkers Aerobatic Team members performed aerial stunts atop Boeing Stearman Biplane followed by Aerobatic display from team Sarang and Redbulls.
Breitling Wingwalkers and Scandinavian Aerobatic team also known as skycats perform on the wings of an aircraft which was a bright yellow plane named Catwalk.
Here’s a glimpse of the spectacular performance if you have missed this year Aero Show 2015.
