After first Indian woman, first Bollywood actor to fly F-16

BANGALORE: The first Indian woman to fly the F-16 was Suman Sharma, Delhi-based journo, who did it in 2009. Now, the first Bollywood actor to fly the f-16 will be Shahid Kapoor.

Kapoor, who is playing the role of a fighter pilot in his forthcoming film Mausam, will fly the American Lockheed Martin F-16 Super Viper combat aircraft at the Aero India show in Bangalore next week.

"Shahid Kapoor will fly the aircraft on February 12 during the five-day air show," Lockheed Martin officials said here. He will fly the plane from the Indian Air Force Station Yelahanka as co-pilot, as a part of the show from February 9 to 13.

It's a huge honour and privilege and, at the same time, probably the coolest thing I have done yet in life. I am super excited about it," Kapoor, who will be the first Bollywood actor to fly F-16, told agencies.

Kapoor said he has successfully undergone several tests and hoped to sail through the remaining ones. Kapoor has undergone rigorous training for the last one month. Most of these tests are related to flying at a very high velocity and making sure the person doesn't suffer from motion sickness.

Kapoor will have to pass a flight simulation test before he gets into the cockpit which will be like flying the actual flight.

Lockheed Martin was approached by the producer of the movie Mausam, in which Shahid Kapur plays the role of a young Indian Air Force fighter pilot.

Kapoor, 29, joins the likes of celebrities such as Tata Group chairman Ratan Tata, wing commander Rakesh Sharma--the first Indian to have gone in space and MP Navin Jindal who have flown as pillions in two-seater versions of fighters.


To clarify a bit, he will not be piloting the plane. He will sit in the back seat and probably be given the control of the plane while up there in the air.

He 'll be given a chance to take control towards the later part of the flight. Depends on how confident he is at that time....achho achho ki geeli ho jaati hogi. That reminds me Fighter Pilots are also required to wear diapers. LOL
