Well done and congratulations. How refreshing it is to read a reply that is both positive and encouraging.

I really am not being condescending. It is a breath of fresh air.

All the best to those that get to fly the beasts.

You would have thought they would have done interviews all over the country, Lossie is a bit of a haul to find you cannot park... says parking limited

Good luck to them

1) The MAD boom is not Indian developed, it's a CAE AN/ASQ-508A - same as used on the C295 and P-1.

2) Fly lower!

I would guess because it's a military aircraft where those on board can reasonably be considered to be fit enough and properly trained to evacuate using emergency ladders / ropes etc.

This saves the weight, cost, complexity and risk of door slides.

I could be wrong.

The Nimrod looked as much like an airliner as the E-3 does.

Whilst the kit may be CAE AN/ASQ-508A the task of adding it to the P-8A and therefore the task of certifying it fell on the Indians as they are the only ones that wanted it!

Fly lower?? The air frame/engine isn't optimised for it, simples!!!!

Does the Indian Neptune have the same senor suite as the US/UK/Aus ones? Or is it an 'export' version?

I suppose Dave F68 was possibly referring to this healine in an Asian area newspaper "The Diplomat"India Approves Procurement of 10 More P-8I Maritime Patrol Aircraft

The Indian Ministry of Defense reportedly greenlit the acquisition of 10 more P-8I Neptune sub-hunting planes

Not that I know owt about coastal.
