Moth and the Master to fly at Aero India

Feb 4 2013, 8:42am CST | by

Chennai, Feb 4 (IANS) Asia's premier air show and air exhibition Aero India 2013 in Bangalore will display vintage craft Tiger Moth and Indian Air Force's (IAF) heavy lift metal bird C-17 Globmaster III.

Chennai, Feb 4 — Asia's premier air show and air exhibition Aero India 2013 in Bangalore will display vintage craft Tiger Moth and Indian Air Force's (IAF) heavy lift metal bird C-17 Globmaster III.

The two metal birds will show the spectrum of technological advancement between them, said a defence ministry statement issued Monday. The show starts Wednesday.

The Tiger Moth aircraft was resurrected recently as part of the IAF vintage flight. The aircraft will be flown for the first time.

It was the primary trainer craft for the Royal Air Force (RAF) during World War II and was the basic trainer aircraft in IAF from 1940.

Interestingly, the aircraft has to be cranked manually as it has no electric system.

On the other hand, the IAF's heavy lifter Globemaster is capable of carrying a maximum payload of 77.5 tonnes. It can carry combat vehicles, artillery guns and battle ready troops.

The four-engine aircraft is capable of taking off and landing on makeshift runways, barely 3,500-feet long and 90-feet wide.

Wonkblog: Why Modi’s India might be finally be set for an economic revival

Oct 30 2014 2:16pm CDT | Source: The Washington Post

On the campaign trail last winter, Narendra Modi, India’s new prime minister, presented himself as a white-bearded knight who could ride in and reinvigorate the nation’s economy. Voters were fed up with sluggish growth, limited job opportunities for India’s enormous youth population and frequent corruption scandals involving government officials. Modi’s promise to strengthen the economy and streamline the messy bureaucracy struck a powerful chord with v ...
