Rafale, Tejas dazzle at Aero India air show in Bengaluru

The 12th edition of the biennial Aero India 2019 air show took off on Wednesday with a dazzling flying display of military and civilian aircraft at the Indian Air Force's (IAF) Yelahanka base here. The multi-role medium combat aircraft Rafale of the French Dassault Aviation was a clear winner, with daring feats at the aerial display visitors' area. In the midst of showcasing Rafale's air power, its French Air Force pilot Captain Nativel paid tribute from the air to IAF pilot Wing Commander Sahil Gandhi, who died here on Tuesday after two Surya Kiran Hawk aerobatic aircraft collided in the air and crashed. The Light Combat Aircraft (LCA) Tejas, Jaguar and Sukhoi-30 fighter also flew in a 'Missing Man' formation as a tribute to Gandhi.
