Bangalore -- India's hyped Aviation Capital of India -- slept again this year on the occasion of the 107th Anniversary of the historic first flight of Wright Brothers. None of the so-called flag-bearers of India aviation bothered to organize any events or conduct talks to commemorate this historic day. Above are some snapshots from a paper-plane flying contest conducted by Tarmak007 in association with the Inspired Indian Foundation at a public ground. Armed with 20 flying platforms of 'different sizes, make and endurance', middle schoolchildren of New Thippasandhara area remembered the contribution of Wright Brothers by launching their light combat aircraft. One after the other, they touched the skies with glory. When last heard, all the planes landed safely, barring one, which deviated from the flightpath immediately after the take-off, due to excessive initial thrust! Sorry, Wright Bors -- we shall put up a better show next year! Photos: Bhaktar Babu, Bangalore Beat
