Got this from MSF:
INDIAN AIR FORCE'S PLATINUM JUBILEE AIR DISPLAY


18:32 IST 27-09-2007
The Indian Air Force celebrates its 75th anniversary on 08 Oct 2007. To
commemorate this occasion, an air display by 75 aircraft will form part of
the Air Force Day Parade Cum investiture ceremony. The Air Force is
organizing these functions at Air Force Station Hindon in Ghaziabad.
Rehearsal of the air display will commence from 3rd October 2007. Aircraft
will fly at heights from 60 mtrs to 500 mtrs above ground level between 0830
and 1030 AM from 3rd Oct 07 to 08th Oct 07. The areas over which aircraft
will be flying at low levels are Wazirpur bridge- Karwalnagar - Afjalpur -
Hindon, Pilkhowa - Nahal - Kusalia - Sadarpur - Guldhar - Hindon and
Hindon - Chandinagar - Dhakauli - Pilana.

BIRDS POSE A SERIOUS THREAT TO AIRCRAFT FLYING AT LOW LEVELS. EATABLES
THROWN OUT IN THE OPEN ATTRACT BIRDS. TO ENSURE A SAFE FLY PAST, THE INDIAN
AIR FORCE REQUESTS THE CITIZENS OF HINDAN AND ITS NEIGHBOURHOOD NOT TO THROW
EATABLES AND GARBAGE IN THE OPEN. ALSO, IF THEY FIND ANY CARCASS OUT IN THE
OPEN, THEY ARE REQUESTED TO REPORT THE SAME TO THE NEAREST AIR FORCE UNIT /
POLICE STATION TO ARRANGE FOR ITS DISPOSAL.

The flying display will commence with performances by a Streak Shadow
microlite aircraft, a para-motor and aero-models. This will be followed by a
paradrop by 75 members of the Akash Ganga Team marking the 75th Platinum
Jubilee year of the IAF. During the parade, three Mi-17 helicopters carrying
the IAF ensign will fly past at low level. At the end of the parade and the
investiture ceremony, the Air Warrior Drill Team will put up a display of
Arm Drills. The main part of the air display will commence thereafter. In
the lead will be the Microlite aircraft and pilots that recently created the
world record for flying around the world in 80 days. This will be followed
by 'Big Rotor' formation of one Mi-26 helicopter, two ALH and two Cheetah
helicopters, 'Chakra' formation comprising three Mi-35 helicopters, and
'Spectrum' formation comprising one Avro, two An-32 and two Dornier
aircraft. 'Mixedbag and Vulcan' formation comprising one IL-78 refueling
tanker with two Mirage aircraft will follow. The Mirages will pull up
steeply in front of the spectators. Four aircraft each of Jaguar, Mig-21
Bison and Mig-23 will then approach head-on, followed closely by three
aircraft each of Mig-29 and Mirage-2000, all of which will perform split
manoeuvres in front of the dais. Thereafter, three Su-30 MKI aircraft will
fly in Vic formation and perform the magnificent Trishul manoeuvre. After
this, two Su-30 MKI aircraft will cross each other at low level at high
speed. On of the Su-30 will exit thereafter while the other will demonstrate
the amazing manoeuvrability of the aircraft in an aerobatic display. The
grand finale will be a scintillating display of formation aerobatics by the
renowned "Surya Kiran' Team if nine aircraft. Their routine will include
take off in Vic formations of three aircraft in front of the spectators,
followed by a breathtaking display of synchronized low level manoeuvring in
close formation. A Searcher UAV will be airborne prior to commencement of
the parade to keep an eye on the entire proceedings.
