Aero India 2023: HAL removes Lord Hanuman's image from HLFT-42 aircraft model

| @indiablooms | 14 Feb 2023, 01:24 pm

New Delhi/IBNS: The Hindustan Aeronautics Limited (HAL) on Tuesday erased the picture of Lord Hanuman from the tail of the HLFT-42 aircraft model being displayed at the Aero India 2023 event in Bengaluru.

This picture was removed a day after HAL unveiled a scale model of the Hindustan Lead in Fighter trainer (HLFT-42).

In Hindi, Marut is one of the several names of Wind or ‘Pawan’.

In Hindu mythology, Lord Hanuman is the son of Pawan, which is why a picture of the lord was displayed on the model aircraft.

The HLFT-42 is a next-generation, supersonic trainer that has been developed for a critical role in modern combat aircraft training, designed to bridge the gap between the Hawk-132 Subsonic trainer and Mig-21, which are used to train pilots in supersonic technology.
