Tejas enthralls at Air Force Day

2 25

On Sunday, 8th Oct 2017 at Hindon Air Force Base: With vertical climbs, loops, turns and more, indigenous Light Combat Aircraft Tejas left spectators spellbound as it flew over the Hindon airbase at a function to mark the 85th Air Force Day.
Poor visibility failed to play spoilsport for the indigenous fighter, the most recent one to join the Indian Air Force, as it took off right in front of the area where the parade was held, with a vertical climb followed by a loop.

The fighter jet was being flown by Group Captain Madhav Rangachari, an ace pilot of the IAF who has been involved with the LCA since its test flights.

The ‘Vertical Charlie’ was meant to be a salute to the Air Force Chief, and the steep climb displays the aircraft’s ability to to quickly climb to heights to combat enemy fighters.

    Hindon airbase has a poor visibility most of the times as it has various types of industries in the neighbourhood. Please avoid having airshows as long as the vis is low.
