With two prototypes, the N-LCA test crew has been churning out sorties from on board INS Vikramaditya. Starting with a historic arrested landing on January 12, the crew, led by Commodore Jaideep Maolankar, has completed over a dozen traps and launches, a frenetic schedule to emphasise the jet’s carrier capability amidst newly defined doubts about its future in current form. The videos here, courtesy Anantha Krishnan M., are the first clips of the launch and tailhook trap taken from on-board the aircraft.
