Displaying during the full dress rehearsal for the 89th Air Force Day, this Harvard of Heritage Flight IAF stands out in its striking colors. This was RAF FS787 that was shipped as new to India in 1943. It went to the RIAF in Sept. 1947 and continued to fly till 1989. Thereafter, it went to the UK for restoration by Reflight Airworks and came back to India inside an IAF C-17 in July 2014. Harvards not only equipped Training Command's No. 1 and No. 2 Air Force Academy but also took part in conflicts.

One of the nicer sights visible from the flyover between airport and the Bandra-Worli Sea Link. The Flogger was inducted in No. 10 Sqn. "Winged Daggers", which operated the same from Jan. 1981 to Dec. 1993. Other IAF units to operate the type were No. 220 Sqn. "Desert Tigers", No. 31 Sqn. "Lions" and No. 221 Sqn. "Valiants", the last unit to phase out their BNs in March 2009. The BN was used in Op Safed Sagar during the Kargil War to strike Pakistani positions on mountain tops.

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.

Framed in light at IAF Museum Palam, the Bis was the most numerous of the MiG-21 variants to serve the IAF, really a "People's Fighter". The Bis was remarkably agile in flight, as well as a good ground-attack platform. It used to be quite a sight coupled with the lovely double bangs of these fast movers as they went supersonic. For a long time the spear tip of IAF's fighter fleet, the MiG-21 has held the line through many conflicts.

On display outside the HAL Pavilion at Aero India 2021. In keeping with the Atmanirbhar Bharat vision, the emphasis was on rotary-wing platforms, with HAL showcasing its indigenously built helicopters. Successor to the much used SA-315B Cheetah that provides a lifeline to the Indian Army at Siachen, the Cheetal is powered by the Turbomeca TM 333-2M2 with FADEC that replaces the Artouste IIIB turboshaft engine. It is designed for better climb performance, higher payload and increased range.

A classic aircraft of Training Command flies past at Aero India 2019. First flown on Sept. 4, 1964, the successful Kiran was designed and built by HAL as a basic jet trainer. The first Kiran Mk.Is with the RR Viper 11 turbojet were inducted in the IAF in March 1968, equipping the Flying Instructors School (FIS) at Tambaram. Production was switched to the Mk.IA with hardpoints under the wings, and later to the Mk.II with a 18.728kN RR Orpheus 701-05 turbojet for Stage-II training of fighter pilots.

Rolling into the inverted over Yelahanka on a bright day during Aero India 2021, the Ambassadors of the Indian Air Force always leave a lasting impression on the public wherever they go. Surya Kiran 9 streaming smoke is closest to the camera. He makes up the highly experienced synchro pair along with Surya Kiran 8, streaming smoke on the far side.

The museum's Iskra 1415 has been refurbished and repainted at Bydgoszcz in 2021 to represent Indian air force machine W1741. That was the serial of the first Iskra delivered to the type's only user outside Poland. Interestingly, the last of two other Indian TS-11s that were W1741 at some point, has been preserved in Poland for some time as Polish AF 432 - but not this one.

The only foreign customer for the Iskra was the Indian AF, which operated a total of 64 Iskra bis D aircraft from 1975 until 2004. The museum has repainted Iskra 1415 into the scheme worn by Indian Iskra W1741 as it underwent overhaul at Bydgoszcz

On a trailer during the Republic Day rehearsal in its silver finish. This Spitfire was delivered twice to the IAF, first arriving in Feb. 1946 as SM986 and was delivered to No. 320 MU, returning to the UK in June 1947. It was sold back to the IAF, arriving in Dec. 1949 and was issued serial number HS986, perhaps the only IAF Spitfire to retain the last three digits of its RAF serial. It was transferred from No. 1 BRD to No. 15 Sqn. in May 1952, suffered a landing accident and went back to No. 1 BRD. The aircraft is now displayed at IAF Museum Palam in a different paint scheme.
