I just cant understand the tendency of all politicians - from George Bush-Bhai to Anthony-chettan - to be caught sitting behind the controls of aircraft - low tech or high tech. Most if not all of them look downright silly. As for the KT-1 , the logistical nightmare for the Indian Armed Forces increases !

for a non aviator...it will feel awesome to sit behind the controls of any a/c....

Do not underestimate the Koreans they are state of art in ship building and are aiming the same in Aircraft and nuclear energy field.

Well advised for India to get into some sort of alliance and harness Korean tech.....which also adds to china s irritation politically to see korean- indian alignment.

Remember we do not have anything like their Dokodo.......

Why should people like you have problems with the Indian defence minister sitting in the cockpit of a Korean aircraft . Are you from the blacklisted company ? Something's burning ?
