A 20-member team from American plane-maker Lockheed Martin (LM) will touchdown for the Aero India-2013, hoping for new opportunities in aerospace and defence sector. As they get down to business hours in the cosy comforts of air show pavilions, the Indian Air Force (IAF) pilots will take the newly-inducted mammoth LM-built beast – the C-130J Super Hercules turbo-prop military transport aircraft – on a date, displaying its cool flying features. In an interview, Mr Abhay Paranjape, Director, Business Development, Lockheed Martin National Executive, India, said that this time his team is hitting Bangalore with multiple agenda. “Meeting potential customers, suppliers and expanding our relationship with Indian industries top our mission. We are definitely looking to expand our presence in India, especially after the induction of C-130Js,” Mr Abhay said.
