If the inaugural day of the ninth edition of Aero India 2013 was a lacklustre affair, Day Two turned the tables totally.

Belieing the first day’s impression that the Aero India, after nine avataars, has reached its fatigue factor, was the full flow of families that thronged the exhibition site.

Dressed in their sartorial best, equipped with brollies in beautiful vibgyor hues, sporting sun-topis and berets of different shades and shapes, smartness personified they were there providing a full dress rehearsal of things to come during the next three days.

From promising cadets, young and aspiring students seeing aviation as a prospective career, proud parents of Air Force men, exhibitors, were all there to soak in the awesome, aerial display.

Of course, the Red Bulls, with their breath-taking aerobatics, daredevil stunts saw each of the audience miss a heartbeat at the precision drill they went through to a nicety.

The scorching sun did not prevent the families from braving it for a piece of plucky action that was specially put out for them by various dazzling displays.

What made the families day out at the airshow was being the cynosure of the platoon of photographers, who made them the centre of attraction by clicking them in various poses as they zealously savoured the day’s action at the Air Force base, Yelahanka.
