Seems there are no Indians and no Mig 29Ks (no aircrafts) too

A rather portly bunch! Are they the ship's mechanics, Shiv? And why are they holding plaques? Have they been laid off?

Shiv, I have a question. Are those second hang Migs or new ones ?. Because if you see the first pic that you have posted on the blog , check there is an soviet star half painted looks like they did a paint job to hide it. Also the prototype that we saw couple of years ago was clean but the body of aircraft is not so clean as it has many wielded (read uneven and unclean) airframe. Just wanted to check because the pic is clearly doesn't look of a brand new aircraft

Dear Shiv Aroor, Thanks for putting up the picture of the MiG-29K- it is extremely beautiful and informative. I am an editor Wikipedia, which is currently the 5th most-visited English-language website in the world. There are over 2.5 million articles on English Wikipedia, and over 7.9 million registered editors. You can view my Wikipedia user page at en.wikipedia.org/wiki/User:chitresh verma. I hope you might be willing to license this image for use on Wikipedia to be used to illustrate the article. As before, attribution will be given to you and linked to your blog. I was wondering if I could I use some of the pictures that you've taken of the MiG-29K on the respective Wikipedia pages? Namely: MiG-29K and the associated pages for the individual projects, and any other pages where these pictures might be useful. As of now, there are very few good pictures of the Future of the Indian Armed Forces, as well as large size images of the MiG-29K. Your images will really go a long way in improving on that. According to Wikipedia Image use policy, Wikipedia accepts only freely-licensed pictures; This means that images you license out can be freely used, modified and distributed, either commercially or non-commercially, under the condition that attribution be provided to the copyright holder, namely, you. If you would like to contribute the image, you could license it license it out under Creative Commons 2.5 India. Attribution will be provided to you. If you agree, could you reply to me by posting a reply here, and include the following statement in your posting: "I own the copyright to the image(s) attached to this posting a reply here .

Thanks a lot for your time and effort in taking those photographs, and the patience in allowing me to use them.

Let's see if EJ-200 engine can fit into MiG-29 airframe. If it does it makes sense to adapt MiGs to that engine and make EJ200 engine here like Shakti and it can be used for LCA MK2 and MCA too. Who says you can only MKIize with avionics only?
