Well we have been friends for like 6 years now and for the first time in 6 years we spent 9 days and I just would’nt get bored listening to his description and the passionate talks about his fighter jet, his apparent girlfriend MIRAGE. This post is dedicated to and inspired by him….While he was talking about the hawks, migs, F21, mirage etc, I decided to do a little study on them and it turned out to be very interesting…..Let me furnish a little information on what I thougt could be intreseting .

HAWK: It is a British aerospace which is a light- attack and used for training purpose. The maximum level of speed of the Hawk is over 1000kmph and this aircraft can attain supersonic speed in a dive. Its lenght is 39 feet/11.94 m & can accomodate a crew of two.

MiG: They are Russian aircraft, again to be used as fighter jets. There have been number of productions of MiG, for example MiG-1, 3, 5….23,25,29 and the latest export variant is MiG-35,with a combination of the modern systems of MiG29M2 with an AESA radar, and with the thrust vectoring of the MiG-29OVTas an additional option, and in India it is MiG-29MRCA. For those of you who are wondering about MiG, Top Gun features the fictional MiG-28.

Well it may sound thrilling to hear, but it is sheer will power and the passion that drives fighter pilots to fly these aircrafts. And for Prajyoth, Life which is flying is a journey not a destination….
