Oh I don't mean anything personal rather talking about the Indian Air Force. I always look forward to the IAF's Republic Day Flypast, but sadly must say that despite adopting the policy of only fielding twin engine Jets for the occasion and only conducting a simple flypast, the IAF maintains a minimum altitude of some 300 Meters resulting formations becoming obscured specially if there is Cloud cover on the day, moreover the solo aircraft that runs in to execute Vertical Charlie already is at such height that by the time it pulls up to perform the rolls it becomes barely visible to the naked eye. In contrast it's interesting to see how the Pakistan Air Force is flying or rehearsing for the Pakistan Day Parade on 23 March. Here like all PAF jets, is a single engine F-16 carrying out aerobatics over the heart of Capital. Forget a simple flypast, it reportedly conducted most of it's display at around just 200 Feet AGL.
Confidence also plays a major part in Quality V Quantity equation.

Here one can see the SU-30 doing a Vertical Charlie and despite it's huge size and a clear blue sky, it's hardly visible since it executes the manoeuvre at such a height.

Dehli has serious low level smog and bird strike problems so the IAF is extremely cautious. The way Islamabad is going with smog due to ballooning population that day isn’t far where the same will have to be done there.

LOL, over it's base. :lol:
Plus we love this aircraft so much that we kept it in a museum.... Well whatever was left of it.
Oh if you meant over public areas, I believe it's not allowed. Very unfortunate for us. Some of the videos I've seen in the US where they fly supersonic near a crowded beach is something I'd love to experience.

Yea even a simple flypast is done at such height that sometimes the aircraft end up behind Modi Ji's cloud.
