Has she arrived?!
Mixed signals aplenty. Reports emerging about the Phalcon having landed in India, but everyone in the IAF, from the Chief to the Base Commander at Agra (50 Sqn will house the Phalcons) have claimed not to have a clue about the big bird’s arrival. But hearts are already a flutter. Someone on the BRF forums says he saw a Phalcon taking off from the HAL airport in Bangalore this morning! I’m hoping all of these stories are true. Are we gonna see her fly on Republic Day?? Others say the first Phalcon is only expected in February. Let’s wait till tomorrow.
