Here it is, and many thanks to the source.

The Mysore airport is being made ready for ATR operations.
Jan.11, 2007 was the first day a trial run was made ---- at around 11 a.m. with a few more trials till 4 p.m.
Here are the first exclusive pictures of the aircraft landing.
Land is available at the present Mandakalli airport and is close to the Mysore railway station.
The AAI will build the runway which will be 1,700 m long. To complete it, completion, it may take anywhere between 12 and 18 months.
Air Deccan says it will begin operations as soon as possible.

The pictures show the Chamundi Hills in the background.

KCM,

Are the 2nd and the third fotos of the same a/c because in the 2nd foto the engine seems to be on the nose of the a/c but in the third its on the wings, and AFAIK the third one looks like an ATR, so wht a/c is in the 2nd pic?

Cheers

Negative

The first and second pics. are of a Pilatus PC-12

And I think the last is an older Piper Seneca, could be wrong though. Smile

Three aircraft were used.
One belonged to Deccan Aviation. Another one belongs to a business house with links to the Mysore Royal family.
Third one is a blank!

Aah, that explains it thanks. I was confused because the text above the pictures mentions ATR.

Thanks for clarifying.

Cheers

Mysore has got an IATA code and is an offline station of Indian Airlines.
Much later Vayudoot had operations there and then stopped. Mysore Maharajah was a patron and continues to play a role.

Himmat, airport is close to the railway station.

Was checking at Google Earth, it is in fact very close to Mysore Palace.
