Remarks: An overview of O'Hare after departing 9R. The famed USG lot is bottom center with a great view of runways 4R/22L and 10/28 along with the construction being done on soon to be completed 10C/28C as part of the O'Hare modernization program which will open Chicago up to A380 traffic by late 2013. 10R/28L will be built south of the cargo facilities and cut through the old Irving Park Road with the 28L threshold beginning just west of Sierra 2 exit of 22L.
Remarks: The Marut was the first fighter aircraft designed and built in India, and was developed by a team under the leadership of Kurt Tank, the designer of many Focke-Wulf aircraft during WW2. It was originally intended as an interceptor, but was found to be underpowered and eventually entered service in the ground attack role. The last examples were retired in the late 1980s.Many thanks to Brain for his efforts.
Remarks: The first MiG-25s were procured and inducted in August 1981.A total of 8 MiG-25R single seater aircraft and 2 MiG-25U twin seaters were procured. In 2003, No.102 Squadron was numberplated and its aircraft handed over to No.35 Squadron "Rapiers".This beauty now stands proudly on the ramp of the IAF Museum,New Delhi.Many thanks to Brian for working on this pic!
