No thanks to some serious airline cancellations, diversions and delays, I made it to Brazil just a few hours before the scheduled roll-out of the ERJ-145 airborne early warning and control platform (AEW&C) for the Indian air force. Here’s video of the big moment when the curtain fell.
India will install the Centre for Airborne Surveillance (CABS) phased-array radar on the ERJ-145, but it’s not on the jet. A promotional video displayed on the big-screen at the ceremony showed the new CABS antenna for, I think, the first time.
