Aero India 2019
Aero India is a biennial event which is a much-awaited event for which has always hosted in Bangalore. People from all over the country flock into the city for this event. However, in 2019 the event seemed quite jinxed. There were a lot of mishaps despite which the event took off and ended as scheduled. There were multiple planes crashes; the Mirage aircraft that crashed on February 1st in Yemalur in which we lost both the pilots and the much sought after Surya Kirans is known for their formations especially the diamond formation that crashed mid-air during practice 2 days before lost 1 pilot. A day before the closing, 300 cars caught fire in the parking lot during the event which was suspected to be the negligence of a college kid who threw a  cigarette on dry grass without putting it out completely. Nevertheless, the crowd that attended the show had a lovely time and returned with a good tan.
