For those who missed the October 8th Indian Air Force Day celebrations, it was notable for the first flight of the Harvard and the Tigermoth together - forming part of the IAF Vintage flight. All the aircraft were being flown by Indian Test Pilots belonging to the ASTE.

For those who missed the October 8th Indian Air Force Day celebrations, it was notable for the first flight of the Harvard HT291 and the Tigermoth HU512 together – forming part of the IAF Vintage flight. All the aircraft were being flown by Indian Test Pilots belonging to the ASTE.

The aircraft were displayed in a coordinated display performing crossovers, individual wing overs etc. High risk manuevers were understandably not performed with these priceless aircraft. 

The Harvard performed throughout with a degree of flaps in down position, no doubt to allow it to match the slow speed of the Tigermoth.

The following is a photograph of both the aircraft by Wg Cdr J P Joshi on Flickr.
