IAF, RAF Jets Gun Up For New Bollywood Film

The promos of Bollywood actor Shahid Kapoor's new film Mausam were put out yesterday. Kapoor stars as an Indian Air Force pilot in the film. And if the promo is anything to go by, he's a Mirage 2000H pilot (Floggers/[Tornados] landing behind him in the fourth still), though for the film itself, he was shot in a UAE Air Force F-16 Block 60 and RAF aircraft as well. What is the jet in that last picture though -- anyone?

Without a shadow of a doubt this is an RAF Tornado GR4 as stated by Mihir above.

Flt LT. Goodfellow? wat is it a bollywood movie or a hollywood movie?

Naman said...

Its a Panavia Tornado ADV...

rajiv said...

It really sad that they had to use UAE F16 not indian fighters.

Sagar said...

I just love the second pic..which looks like a Mirage taking off but actually there are two Mirages taking off simultaneously.

That's exactly the question I had before I read the post.
That is a Panevia Tornado.

What is he doing in UAE and RAF jet's, hope the film's good and not a Agnipankh.

The Panavia Tornado.
Bollywood should use their expertise to turn out more realistic military movies, the types we are used to from Hollywood. Spare us the masala; though add a lot of cold war style black ops. yeah!

The time has come for reserving the Director's role for the IAF brass. The civvies are just not up to the mark !

Kartik said...

yup a Tornado..but how can one tell if its an ADV or GR4? Tornado ADV's retired some months ago, but when was this movie's scenes in a Tornado shot ? the ADV could still have been operational when that was shot.

Clearly an F-16

f14 or f15

pred said...

The fourth still is a pair of Tornados as well, not Floggers.

Mandar said...

Tornado for sure.. evidenced by the duct at the base of the tail and the horizontal sensor antenna.

The last picture is that of an Mirage 2000

Sandeep said...

last one is a tornado...

Adarsh said...

Shiv,

It is Tornado GR 4, Look at the small wings(protrusion) on the tail fin!

Shiv Aroor said...

Folks, there's no argument. The question was answered in the first comment by Mihir. This is Shahid in a Tornado. End of discussion. :)

Anonymous said...

This is F22 raptor that Shahid flew secretly in.

Anonymous said...

It is the world's best fighter the JF-17.

shreyan said...

@Adarsh..

The adv variant also sport the same wing lets in the vertical stabilizer section. And the RWR is somewhat same in shape of those variant. And really the scope to distinguish between GR4 and ADV is less given the less scope of the photograph. If you can differentiate between the Console of the WSO in two models then there's a little opportunity that some one can really distinguish the model. But as shiv said...End of discussion.. :)

Nalin Bakshi said...

As far as I can see from the trailer, its not a air force movie. It's more of a love story and it just that the guy in the movie happens to be a pilot.

subin_raju said...

I dnt knw where exactly this still has been shot, but as far as the jet in picture is concerned, it is, of course, a Eurofighter Typhoon trainer!!
