There was a surprise in store for the aam janata though the air show opend to the public only in the afternoon, they were allowed in right from the morning. Most of the mean machines that flew on the first day were seen in action on the second day too — Rafale fighter jets, Tejas, Sarang helicopter team and others had audiences on the edge of their seats. The Tejas was a huge hit on both days. “It looks and sounds better than most of the old MiGs and Sukhois. The plane is sleek and moves swiftly,” said Mr Arjun Das, a lawyer who visited Aero India 2013 for the first time. “This aircraft should definitely be integrated into the Indian Air Force.” Many youngsters thronged various stalls at the event for valuable insights into the functioning of an aircraft. It always wanted to be a pilot. But never got an opportunity to be one,” said Mr Gunjan Kumar, 22, a final-year BA student. “This is the closest I’ve come to real aircraft, fighter planes and aeroplane engines. I also got a glimpse of the Air Chief of Staff,” said the youngster.
