The Indian Defense Minister AK Antony, after inaugurating the DefExpo in New Delhi today, decided to go walkabout.

Antony being instructed by Eurofighter Test pilot, Craig Penrice.

And our man seems to be no less enthused by fighter aircraft than the average guy. Turns out, he walked unannounced into the Eurofighter stall and going straight to the Flight Simulator, clambered in, said eyewitnesses.

Antony, with Minister of State for Defense Pallam Raju and Bernhard Gerwert, CEO, Military Air Systems, EADS & Chairman, Supervisory Board, Eurofighter GmbH (extreme right with the blue badge).

The Eurofighter staff present, were only to happy to get a chance to show off their aircraft to the man who will have something to say about which of the six aircraft the Indian Air Force (IAF) ultimately buys at the end of the 126 Medium Multi Role Combat Aircraft (MMRCA) competition.

So what do you think?
