We have fulfilled Kalam’s desire: BrahMos CEO S K Mishra

Bengaluru, June 25: BrahMos Aerospace CEO Sudhir Kumar Mishra said that his team has fulfilled one of the desires of former President Dr A P J Abdul Kalam on Saturday.
In an interview to Mathrubhumi, after the Su-30MKI touched down at HAL’s Nasik unit successfully completing a 58-minute demonstration flight carrying the 2.4 tonne BrahMos supersonic cruise missile, Mishra said he is an ‘extremely satisfying man’ executing another dream of Dr Kalam.
“We are all delighted that such a heavy missile was carried airborne by Sukhoi safely, securely and successfully during its first demonstration flight. No other country in the world has done this exercise so far and that makes our mission so special. It is a happy moment in my life,” Mishra said.
He said the mission also demonstrated India’s increasing technology capabilities in missile and military aviation fields.
* Test-firing in October or November this year
* Irkut Corporation excited about Sukhoi prospects
* Dr Kalam knew the potential of the missile * More trials ahead of final firing from Balasore
