LN-WND Daks taxiing out in the late afternoon for their display at Flying Legends 2011 Airshow. This C-53D Skytrooper was taken on strength by the USAAF as 42-68823. It was transferred to England and then went to France in 1944 as “Little Egypt,” serving as transport for Maj Gen Ralph Royce, CG of First TAF (Provisional). After the war the aircraft went to Finnair, being used by Finnish President Kekkonen. The Dak was sold by the Finnish Air force to Dakota Norway, which flew it to Sandefjord in May 1985.

52-6526 On display in the Cold War Gallery at NMUSAF. The swept-wing F-84F Thunderstreak was completely different to the straight-wing F-84 Thunderjet.

The Thunderstreak equipped USAFE squadrons and a large number were supplied to NATO countries under the Mutual Defence Assistance Program during the Cold War. It could deliver a nuclear bomb using LABS. This aircraft served in Europe and the Ohio ANG before being flown to the museum in 1970. (mehr von 52-6526)

Delivered in 1957, this F-11 served with VF-21 "Mach Busters" in CVG-8, then with VT-23 "Professionals" and VT-26 "Tigers" till 1967. (mehr von 141735)

C499 On display at IAF Museum Palam wearing the emblem of No. 8 Sqn "Eight Pursoots." Inducted into the IAF in April 1963, the MiG-21F-13 or Type 74 equipped No. 28 Sqn "First Supersonics" under Wg Cdr Dilbagh Singh.

In the West, FLs from No. 47 Sqn "Black Archers" and No. 29 Sqn "Scorpions" shot down four PAF F-104s without loss, clearly besting the Starfighter. The last IAF FLs were decommissioned in Dec. 2013.

N53612 On display at Planes of Fame Air Museum. This sailplane was built during World War II to train cargo glider pilots. It had a single wheel instead of a skid, and the fuselage had a steel-tube structure, weighing 475 lb empty. The USAAC placed an order for 75, followed by 75 more. These were given the designation TG-4A, but the flight characteristics were quite different to those of a cargo glider. After the war, these "L-K" gliders with a 23:1 glide ratio were used to promote civilian gliding, and some were modified to achieve higher airspeeds. (mehr von N53612)

39RED On display in the Cold War Gallery at the National Museum of the U.S. Air Force. This is the export version of the MiG-23 that was less capable than domestic Soviet versions.

The Soviet aircraft were used to simulate realistic adversaries, helping American aircrews to gain skill and confidence to defeat these threats. Constant Peg ended in 1988. (mehr von 39RED)

With plenty of time to spare between flights, it was nice to roam around a fairly empty IGIA Terminal 3 at night. The Surya Namaskar statue sculpted by Nikhil Bhandari with 12 asanas of the Yogic exercise is a calming sight in the normally frenetic airport.
