This aircraft is on display in the Department of Aerospace Engineering, Indian Institute of Science. It is one of the first trainers designed and manufactured by Hindustan Aeronautics Limited. A visit to the HAL museum revealed that VT-DFY was indeed one of the very first of its kind produced and is little over 50 years old. Its really sad to see it in such a delapidated state. It could have been maintained in a much better fashion.

Agreed that they haven't maintained it well..but the photo is striking with the greenery and the old silver plane...looks like lost trasure suddenly discovered in a tropical jungle. I believe VT-DFY was one of the prototypes. (AD,India).
