One of the show stealers can be a full-scale presentation of the Mikoyan-Gurevich aka MiG -35 aircraft at sixth biennial Aero India 2007 air show in Bangalore scheduled for February 7-11,” says RAC MiG Deputy Director General Vladimir Barkovsky.

The MiG -35, an export version of the MiG -29m ovt (Fulcrum F), is a highly maneuverable air superiority fighter powered by RD-33 ovt thrust vectoring engines, similar to the ones installed on Sukhoi SU-30mki multi-role fighters earlier acquired by IAF from Russia.

    I had gone to the 1st Edition (think so) of Aero India 98 and the Second Edition (or third, not sure) as well. What I found was that while people came for the Displays, on the last day of show, the crowd got unmanageble and many of them were able to take away displays (real good ones at that) kept inside Trade halls.

    Since, other than getting glitzy brouchers, the trade hall contained nothing else of interest to the General Public, from the next edition, they decided to seperate it and charge a higher fee for it aka Business Visitors.
