The roar overhead

Overseas viewers of the Mohali test will have noticed the sound of aircraft over the ground. Thats because Mohali is located close to the Chandigarh Indian Air Force (IAF) base. So, expect to hear An-32s, IL-76s (transport aircraft), Mi-26s (one of the heaviest and most powerful helicopters in the world)and MiG-21 Bisons (an upgraded version of the venerable MiG-21) taking off and landing. Its an awe-inspiring sight and sound, a bit noisy at times, but a good experience for plane-spotters.
