All eyes on Bangalore skies today

Bangalore: Union Defence Minister A K Antony will formally inaugurate the Aero India 2011 at the Air Force Station in Yelahanka on Wednesday.
Touted as the biggest event in Asia, the present day version of Aero India began as a modest display of a few aviation assets as AviaIndia in 1993. The biennial air show, renamed AeroIndia since 1998, and has become bigger and more popular that must rank among one of the largest attended air shows in the world.
But this was a reputation that the organizers of the show had to build over the years. Discounting AviaIndia 1993, the growth in Aero India Show since 1998 to 2005 was marginal. It began showing a quantum increase in the gross exhibition area only from the 2007 edition. During the early years, the space ranged between the 7,00018,000 sq mts mark from 1998 to 2005. But it grew sharply to 30,000 sq mts in 2007 and 44,000 sq mts in 2009. Added to this the organisers are living up to the theme of the show that this is truly a global event as there are over 380 organisations that will be participating in this event.
