Was there on Sunday, but the overall show had dampened spirits if I were to compare it to the 2011 show. Moreover the Russian Knights skipped the flare display routine which was disappointing. The Redbulls were awesome as always but I felt a void because the Suryakirans are no longer performing.

Here are some of the pictures from the day:

The Sarang team showing off their skill for close encounters.

Russian Knights - The most awaited stars of the season. How I wished they had done the amazing display with the flares.

Last but not the least, the Redbulls showing us what their propeller driven planes can deliver.

2. @Hawk - Alpha company productions?

They are not Eurofighter Typhoon - Its the Dassault Rafael - the one that has won the MMRCA contract for IAF. We will soon see this in Indian colours. The difference is the Engine intake - s intakes in Rafael and Typhoon has rectangular chin intake. Here is the Typhoon:

Lots of aircraft are capable reversing under own power. In fact, most aircraft with reverse thrust capabillities for braking, would be able to reverse the aircraft as well.

Few actually do, mainly because of operatinal procedures and restrictions. It's just not part of the normal way of operating the aircraft. There are quite a few cases where commercial airliners reversed away from the therminal gates under own power, because ground staff was on strike. It needs special permission from the airport authorities, you need to agree a procedure. And you need to vacate the relevant terminal building as you might blow out the windows!

Nice pictures of the airshow by the way. Really enjoyed reading this thread.

While Airbase Security is in the charter of duties, the main role of the Garuds are other special missions.

Not always. The picture above is an example.

The NSG commandos don a black coverall as well. Google "Indian Navy Marcos" for pics and you will realise that you get to see their faces as well!

The maroon beret signifies that he is a "paratrooper" and does not mean the he is part of a SF formation. So, a regular paratrooper, a SF paratrooper and a Garud/Marco who is para qualified can wear it.

IAF MiG-29s are MiG-29Bs(downgraded export versions of the soviet MiG-29A Fulcrum-A for WP and non-WP nations). The Fulcrum in the pic - KB3112 was from the last batch of MiG-29Bs delivered to the IAF.

Indian AF never operated the MiG-29S Fulcrum-C. The MiG-29S is similar in external appearance to older MiG-29A/B airframes, except for the dorsal hump behind the cockpit canopy.

Isn't MiG-29S known as the Baaz? The upgraded version, MiG-29UPG, has the dorsal hump.

Baaz is the Indian name given to the MiG-29 by the IAF (just like MiG-27M is called Bahadur, MiG-23BN was called Vijay, MiG-25R was called Garuda etc). The Israeli AF nicknamed its F-15 variants as Baaz too.

^Notice the fatter spine compared to the IAF MiG-29B

The dorsal hump/fat spine came on the MiG-29 variants from the MiG-29S onwards and continued on the M,SMT,K variants. Bear in the mind though, SMT variant has a fatter spine than the original "S" variant and the IAF MiG-29UPG will look more like the MiG-29SMT than the original MiG-29S. On the Indian Navy MiG-29K, one can't make out the fat spine because of the trainer type cockpit canopy.

^^At around 4:20 you get to see one of the most aggressive negative G turns that I have seen a fighter do in quite a while!

Those Russian Knights look so similar to Sukhoi, is it a variant of SU?
