Tejas LSP-5 is ready for its maiden flight. In all probability it would be between 10 am and 11.30 am today. Commander Ankur Jain will be at the controls and the flight is expected to be for 20-25 minutes, as per the initial reports. As this piece goes live, I am being told in Hyderabad that the pilot is ready for the P-BIT test (engine run).
The flight is for sure today, if there are no sudden showers and last-minute glitches. Stay tuned.
