RF398 On display at RAFM Cosford. Designed to replace the Lancaster as a long range bomber, the Lincoln was intended to operate in the Pacific with Tiger Force. However, it was too late to see service in WW2 by the time VJ Day occurred. Thereafter, the Lincoln equipped 29 RAF squadrons and a number of flights and schools. One was shot down by MiG-15s over Germany in 1953. This aircraft with its Royal Blue spinners is from Bomber Command Bombing School (BCBS) during 1957-60. It was struck off charge in 1963.

C2216 Looking good at any angle, IAF Museum Palam’s MiG-21bis now sports a shark’s mouth and lightning flash after restoration. The Type 75 was designed for low-level, high-G manoeuvring dogfights with its uprated Tumansky R-25-300 engine, requiring a larger nose inlet diameter for increased airflow. It had the fastest rate of climb among the MiG-21 variants. Initially six aircraft built at GAZ-21 in Gorkii were delivered to India followed by CKD kits, and then manufactured under licence by HAL Nasik. (more of C2216)

VT-CQQ This Super Chief was manufactured in 1948. It was de-registered on May 19, 2006, which means it probably flew for close to six decades in Indian skies. It’s even nicer to see this aircraft preserved inside a hangar alongside HUL-26 Pushpak VT-EHZ, which was de-registered on the same date. HAL’s Pushpak was a close copy of the Aeronca Super Chief, differing in the size of its tail and rudder. (more of VT-CQQ)
