Indian Air Force fighter jets rehearse for the air show to be held at Marine Drive on October 17.
The show will begin with two Chetak helicopters followed by the trooping of the National flag, the Air Force ensign and the Air-India flag.
On their heels, MiG-27 aircraft will photograph the crowds gathered for the air display.
Air-India will then demonstrate the elegant Boeing-747 flying past low.
State-of-the-art Sukhoi-30s will follow. It will be a sight to watch the IL-78 in-flight refueller display its capacities. An exciting mock aerial combat between MiG-29s and Su-30s leading to a low-level acrobatic display by the Su-30 will further charm the crowds.
Dhruv, the advanced light helicopter, will also show rare helicopter formations. IAF’s aerobatic team, the Surya Kiran, which recently performed in a tour of South East Asia, will also perform.
Akash Ganga, a team of sky divers, will free fall from 8,000 feet landing at the Brabourne Stadium as part of the closing performance.
A total of 47 aircraft from Mumbai, Pune, Nashik and Bangalore will scramble over Marine Drive on D-Day.
