Jets leave behind condensation trails as they move out of formation during the Republic Day rehearsal at India Gate. The fighters flying at minimum of about 500 kms/hr get airborne much before the parade begins and maintains the precision time with a minimum error, if any, as close as 10 seconds.
Je remercie Christophe Medici et Arno Koby de Air Show pour son invitation et cette interview dans son émission "pour être heureux vivons coaché". Un très bon moment une belle rencontre aussi de l'invité Anne Ozetre invité aussi. . Merci à vous tous pour ce beau moment partagé. J'espère que les auditeurs auront eu autant de plaisir à l'écouter. ❤ ❤ ❤
The picture from yesterday was a Saab J35 Draken. Here a closeup on the ground at F21 museum. It was used in service between 1959-2005 for 46 years in four different airforces.
Primarily built as a high altitude interceptor of Soviet nuclear bombers under the Cold War. It could climb 10500 m/min with a max altitude of 19995 m at Mach 2. It could carry a load of 11,4 ton.
Armament consisted of 30mm acan m/55 and a load of missiles of type Rb24, Rb27, Rb28, or a load of 75/135 mm rockets.
Draken (Dragon) had a double deltawing with good flying characteristics at high speed but also at low speed due to the smaller outer wing.
A total of 644 J35 Draken were built in several different versions.
-The little wing you can spot on the top is an antenna.
-The F2 version was most numerous with 230 built.
-The J35F2 version had an IR-sensor capable of picking up a heatsignature at 27 km distance.
-The F2 could shorten its landing from 1220m to 850m using a parachute.
-The short range of the acan 30mm with its 90 rounds almost forced the pilot to attack from the back where the enemy bombers defensive armament were strongest.
-If using full speed with afterburner climbing to 15000m 45% of the fuel was used.
-In 1955 while testing the prototype of J35 the chieftester Bengt Orlow crashed while landing after by mistake having detracted the landing gear instead of using the slowdown parachute. .
