While this may be off topic but I wanted to comment anyways.
Media reports out this week reports that the IAC-1 won't see the light of day before 2017-2018 , three years beyond the already delayed timeline announced earlier. So much for indigenization !
Shiv, need you to do a piece on this and what the Navy's alternate options might be now.

Why do we still use Surya Kirans? Th Blue Angles team in the US uses F/8-18E superhornets. Cant we use Mirages or Mig 29s at least?

I'm retired technician from air force. We always work untiringly and selflessly. Sadly promotions not there for deserving ones and no recognitions for all.
