Hey guys,

Well back in 1999 there was this airshow that was held in bombay over the bay, gazillions of people showed up all the way from nariman point, along marine drive, chowpatty, walkeshwar till malabar hill!
I have never seen so many people in my life! And the traffic that day was INSANE!!!
I really want some pictures of that day (i dont really care about pics of the planes...) I want pics of the crowd....preferably from a high viewpoint like a terrace or kamla nehru park or something, anyone got any? I would be very grateful!

Thnks,
Rehaan

Hey rehaan,

Yes, I did take some pics, although nothing from higher ground, only street level, but you get a fairly good idea about the crowds. I'll scan em and post them tomorrow.

Lemme guess, you wanna show your college budds how crowded Bombay is eh?? I know, I did the same thing! Love the look on their faces when I show em pics of marine drive too, coz all they think of India is elephants and snake charmers (I'm talkin country folk here, as I was in Nashville)!

At the meet last nite GTO reminded me of the sukhois at the airshow, and how they came all the way from Nasik/Pune (not sure)....and their ETA was 4minutes, and they still showed up in less time than that!! lol

Hopefully Rtech will post his pics soon
No one else here has pics??

thanks for the pics! that was on hell of a show.

Was at wilson then and the sukhois did some practice runs 2-3 days before the actual show. Was fun when everybody was craning out of class and no one would pay attention to the lecturer! (not like we could hear her anyway)
