HAL Museum, Bangalore

I went to Bangalore from Delhi in Jet Airways. The weather was pleasant in Bangalore. We took an AC bus from the airport to N.A.L campus. The bus was clean and comfortable. We reached N.A.L campus at night. The campus was very big. My chacha lived on 4th floor. The trees there were very tall. The trees were going even above my chacha’s house. The market was near the campus.

One day I went to H.A.L museum by city bus. H.A.L Museum was very green. There were two buildings. We entered in the first building. There I saw a fountain. There were many flowers around it. In that building, I saw many models and pictures of various planes and helicopters made by H.A.L.

We came out of the second building. Outside there were four big planes. I walked to the top of a plane and saw the area where pilot sits. I also saw an aircraft that looked like a missile. This aircraft was a pilot-less plane. On the back side of these buildings there were old helicopters. I also saw two radars. The radars help in controlling the air traffic. There was one plane in that there were only two seats. This plane was made by N.A.L. Its name was Hansa. It is used for hobby and sport flying.



I also saw a heat shield. Heat shields are used to house satellites, which is to be launched into space orbit.

In 2nd building, there was a big hall. In that hall I saw a parachute. With that parachute a man was hanging wearing an oxygen mask. On the first floor of that building there was a flight simulator. There I played on computer and learned how to fly and land an aircraft.

I liked H.A.L Museum.

Then we came back by bus. There were many planes and a helicopter flying. Many military trucks were also going. I asked Papa, is it so that a war has started!

About the Author

I am Rachit, a student of class Six. I have a travel bug in me, just the same as my mother and father. I eagerly wait for trips but can never tell what I like the most; travel or sports or books or something else? For when I am trekking – trekking I really love, but when I am playing I really start loving video games. I started writing when I was Six years old, from then I have improved a lot but still I can be called a beginner. So far I have travelled a good deal. Abroad I have gone to Italy, Germany, Ireland, Austria and Netherlands but at that time I was very youngl. In India, I have been to Kerala, Sikkim, Gujarat, Uttarakhand, Rajasthan, Himachal Pradesh, Karnataka, Maharashtra, Madhya Pradesh, Odisha (Orissa) and Meghalaya. I am crazy about books (other than course books), video games, sports, swimming, birds, music, mangoes, maths and cars. I am a book worm as if you give me 500 page interesting book than it will be finished in two days. Video games, sports, swimming are my playtime. Mango is my favourite fruit and maths, favourite subject. Birding is one of my passion and I have crossed the 100 mark identifying birds. I still want to travel a lot abroad but even in India there is lot left to do, I want to read a lot more books, play a lot more, identify a lot more birds, eat lots and lots of mangoes and do maths, but what I need is more time or rather as my mom says ‘time management’, because there are never going to be more than twenty four hours in a day!.
