Just curious, is only one Mig-29K inducted today. Reports were that 4 Mig-29K had landed in knock down condition and assembled?

Fantastic photograph.

Can you put a larger one to adorn it as a wallpaper.

Great snap! Shiv, I read in some article before (maybe yours) that some of these jocks underwent training on-board US aircraft carriers? Or am I mixing things up?

Also, I'm interested in knowing if these birds are already datalink compatible with the P-8i or whether as usual we'll be begging the ruskies for it at the last moment when the P-8i arrives.

Mig-29K looks almost similar to Su-27..(not Su-30MKI)can anybody point out differences in the looks..
I cant figure out any from pics..

Beautiful, but IMHO one-seated mig has better look, than 2-seated.

>Mig-29K looks almost similar to Su-27..(not Su-30MKI)can anybody point out differences in the looks..

Su-27 bigger, it has more "rough" forms (look at air intakes) and less proportiolal nose part.

This picture is not from INS Hansa. Its from Russia. You can see the trees in the background and its obviously trees not native to Goa.
