I was lazing around around 11 pm on Saturday when I heard the unmistakable roar of a Jet engine over my building. Went to the terrace just in time to see a Delta winged jet flying overhead. (Looked a lot like Rafael but can't be sure. Could've been a Mirage).
There is a clear kilometers of space of military land between my building and HAL/Old Bangalore Airport. So military aircraft test flights happen to be in this area.
The Jet did a number of barrel rolls, then out of the blue began to accelerate.There was a clear trail indicating afterburners and a loud boom shook the vicinity. I ran down to get my camera.
When I returned,it was no where in sight. But now there was another jet (Hawk trainer jet??? could someone identify this jet.) in the air. Again did barrel rolls and flew upside down for a good 6-7 seconds. I managed to record it as it flew overhead.
In the distance exactly over HAL airbase I noticed a chopper being tested. It did a couple of almost 90 degree dives,pulled up sharply, turned 45degrees on a side for a few seconds. The video turned out very bad as it was really far off. Couldn't even make out which chopper it was. I did manage to catch on video a moment when it hovered then went reverse in a straight line (lost it a bit in the video here) then began moving upwards while in a reverse direction.
