Will the F/A-22 attend? that'd be sweet

Mods, feel free to edit post if it takes up too much bandwidth

Aero India 2005, a five-day international aerospace and defence exposition, will started Feb 9 at the Yelahanka Indian Air Force (IAF) base, outside Bangalore.

One of the largest air shows in Asia hosted by the fourth-largest flying air force in the world, the fifth edition of Aero India will see global aerospace and aviation firms at full throttle to showcase their aircraft, hi-tech products and technologies for lucrative deals and collaborative ventures with their Indian counterparts.

About 325 leading aerospace and aviation firms, including 100 from India, and high-level delegations from 45 countries are participating in the biennial event.


This year's show is especially spectactular for military enthusiests for three reasons:
The first, the world is India's oyster when it comes to defense purchases and cooperation. The scale of any Indian purchase makes for incredibly heated competition for companies.

Secondly, Indian defense industry has really come of age in a big way this last year: in aviation alone with HAL Dhruv helicopter, Sitara IJT (Intermediate Jet Trainer), Indian built Su-30MKIs being inducted, and a whole host of indigenous upgrades and souping up of its entire fleet. AeroIndia 2005 is where India will show off her defense prowess.

Thirdly, what also has come of age is the civvie Indian defense enthusiast, who actually rented a stall in Aero India, and who have sent squads of aviation photographers to document every trivial bit of triva about the Indian airforce on display. This makes for some stunning photographs of some of the worlds most unique advanced aircraft and technologies.


This thread shows the first photos from the preparation for and the first & second days of Aero India 2005. Many more photos will come out in the next coming days, and I'll bring them to you.

India wooed global aerospace firms to “outsource” aeronautical products from its industry at the Aero India air show that concluded on Sunday, while the nearly $2 billion deals announced in the five-day event showed the country was not just a huge market for military aircraft but also civil air transport.

The largest ever American aircraft industry delegation took part in the show, while its biggest civil aircraft maker Boeing Corp announced a $1.26 billion order to sell 20 passenger jets to Spicejet Airline, to make its first foray into the fast growing budget carrier market in India.

Boeing and Airbus Industries are bullish on growth in India’s passenger airline market that is expected to buy at least 100 jets in two years.

Lockheed Martin made its pitch at the event to hardsell F-16 Falcon fighter against rivals from France, Sweden and Russia to sell 125 fighter Jets to the Indian Air Force.

IAF chief air chief marshal SP Tyagi said IAF will soon sign a Rs 4,000-crore contract to buy 40 Tejas, the home-grown light combat aircraft from HAL.
