Arrow waiting for my licence

hey ppl,

like most of you'll, i said 'car' before 'mom' when i learnt to speak....

i am from wadala, mumbai, and am 17,

my dad is strict about the rules, so i dont get to drive till i am 18, so, 5 months to go....

my other interest is military aircraft, i m crazy about them,

anyways, planning to do aeronautic engineering (need advice on it, so anyone who is doin it or know about it please PM me)

Su - 30MKI rocks.........

i have a stock palio 1.2 waiting for me, need to make it a little better.

Welcome to the forum

I am the first Fiat owner you have come across. Expect many more.

I respect your Dad's decision. Wish every parent thinks in the same way.

Hey Jalsa.... welcome to team-bhp!
Nice nice, I had a massive interest in military aircrafts back in school, my fav. being the now decomissionized f-14 tomcat. My interest for the plane grew after repeated (and repeated is an understatement!) watching of Topgun! .

Sadly I couldnt do aeronautical engg. after I realised I did'nt have the aptitude for any of the math related subjects!

Nice car you have waiting for you, worth the 5 months!

Godspeed.

Alok.

this is one beatiful plane....
i like it lots too....

but, head comes before heart,
it costs a bomb to maintain, so, US navy decommisioned it.
I bet one thing though, in a dog fight it will beat those baby F-16s any given day

Hmmm.... me thinks the F-16 would beat it... better maneuvering capabilities. But phew! The tomcat A is some serious **** to come accross in a dogfight!

Godspeed.

Alok.
