Alert: LSP-5 cleared for flight

The fifth platform from Tejas LSP block (LSP-5) will kiss the sky any time now. Team Tejas seems to have sorted out major issues and the flight might take place any time now, weather-permitting.  "The flight is expected any moment. We are closing in on," says a source.
The flight readiness review board is said to have given the go-ahead on November 11, barring some test-points. "All we need is a clear sky," says the official.
Meanwhile, the LSP-5 had yet another high-speed taxi trials (HSTT) on Friday (Nov 12) at Old Bangalore airport. "The trials might continue for Saturday and Sunday too,"
the official said.
More updates soon.
