Blast From Past !!

On the afternoon of October 15, 1932, the postmaster of Bombay and other dignitaries were assembled at Juhu in Mumbai to welcome a tiny Puss Moth aircraft which was carrying mail from Karachi. The flight, piloted by J R D Tata, had historical significance – it was first such mail service by an Indian company – and it laid the foundation of Air India.




History will be made once again when a Vistara Airbus A320 aircraft takes off on its maiden flight from Delhi to Mumbai on Friday afternoon. The launch of Vistara will mark the Tata group's re-entry in the airline business after over six decades.
