Wav! great to see ALH with glass cockpit! its amusing! on the first aid box its written in English and Hindi! i think its a goof up coz Ecqudorians can only speak spanish and a smattering of English,if i am not wrong!
is this for VIP purpose or army copter ?

prasun was claiming in his blog that he had insider info (actually telepathy) that the Ecuadorian Dhruvs did not hav glass cockpits..pity him….Shiv, can u give one more flying F to prasun?
Either goofed on the languages or they’re waiting for a switch to spanish in ecuador.
