Bengaluru: Hindustan Aeronautics Limited today removed the sticker of Lord Hanuman that featured on one of their aircraft at the Aero India 2023 in Bengaluru.
“After internal discussion, we decided to remove the image of Hanuman as it is not appropriate to put it now,” HAL Chairman and Managing Director CB Anathakrishnan said.
During the first day of Aero India 2023, HAL showcased the full-scale model of its supersonic trainer aircraft HLFT-42. The model aircraft, which was a major attraction at the show, featured a Hanuman picture on its tail.
HAL said that they had decided to use Hanuman’s picture to display the power of the aircraft.
