Aero India 2023: Lord Hanuman’s Picture Removed From Tail Of Supersonic Aircraft
Today, Hindustan Aeronautics Limited removed the Lord Hanuman decal from one of its planes that was shown at Aero India 2023 in Bengaluru.
“After internal discussion, we decided to remove the image of Hanuman as it is not appropriate to put it now,” HAL Chairman and Managing Director CB Anathakrishnan told.
HAL displayed a full-scale mockup of its HLFT-42 supersonic trainer aircraft on the first day of Aero India 2023. The model plane, which was a main draw at the event, had a depiction of Hanuman on its tail.
The aeronautics organisation claimed that they had chosen to utilise Hanuman’s image to demonstrate the aircraft’s power.
The largest aero exhibition in Asia, Aero India 2023, was opened yesterday by Prime Minister Narendra Modi. 809 firms and delegates from approximately 98 countries will attend the five-day event.
The nation is being highlighted as an emerging centre for producing military aircraft, helicopters, military hardware, and cutting-edge avionics during the 14th edition of Aero India.
The event, according to Prime Minister Modi, shows India’s new strength and aspirations. The Tejas aircraft blazing in the skies is evidence of the success of “Make in India,” Prime Minister Modi stated. “India’s triumphs are giving confirmation of its capabilities and capability.”
