Proud of the dedication of #indianairforce. Thank you to each of them for their commitment & many sacrifices.
In 2014, Sachin Tendulkar attended the Indian Air Force Day with his wife Anjali.
An air display by various aircraft was the hallmark of the Parade cum Investiture Ceremony here in Ghaziabad.
The air display commenced with flag bearing sky divers of famous AKASH GANGA Team dropping out AN-32 aircraft in their colourful canopies.
Women pilots will soon fly fighter jets of the Indian Air Force, Air Chief Marshal Arup Raha said today.
