Video: News 9 showcases airplane spotting and the Aviation Photographers India

The TV station News 9 showcased the hobby of airplane spotting and the Aviation Photographers India (API).

Yesterday, we hosted the News9 crew at the airport and showed them the passion, that some call insanity, of us plane spotters. Many members of API interacted with the News9 crew and offered their perspective.

Two of API’s co-founders Praveen Sundaram and myself were also interviewed earlier this morning at the TV9/News9 studios.

Hope you enjoy this 17 minutes video. Sorry, I could not post on YouTube given their 10 minutes video length limitation.

Please share this article and help increase awareness about spotting in India. Do also recognise the positive role and encouragement by the airport operator Bengaluru International Airport Limited (BIAL) in helping form the first official plane spotting group in the country. Comments are welcome as usual.
