Recently, with permission of the DGCA, the Aviation Photographers India Foundation visited the air-side at New Delhi’s Indira Gandhi International Airport (IGIA) as guests of the airport operators, Delhi International Airport Ltd., for which each member of the foundation, including me, express our grateful thanks.

The first of a series of videos, produced by Abhishek Singh in cooperation with Bangalore Aviation, entitled “The Departures” is below the fold.
It was thrilling. We shot near the runway amongst tall dry grass, classic of the Delhi flora, and we could hear snakes slithering near by. But the roar of jet engines and the love of those magnificent flying machines, supported by all the people involved in running an airport, kept us put.
Hope you enjoy this labour of love. Do change the quality to HD (720p or 1080p) to really enjoy the video. If you are reading this story in our e-mail digest, you will have to visit our website, or see the video here.
