This tacky (and wasteful) mock-up of a Phalcon AWACS rolled past the crowds as part of the Republic Day parade this morning. The IAF usually has the best display — obviously, the fly-past — on any R-Day parade, but this time they did themselves in with this seriously distasteful aircraft model, only slightly better than one of those awful state tableaux. Also noticed that the MiG-29s were not part of this year’s fly-past. Hope the birds are doing ok.
