India prepares to celebrate its 90th Indian Air Force Day. Take a look!

India is getting ready to observe its 90th Air Force Day. The president, the head of the IAF, and senior military officers attend the nation’s celebration of this day on October 8 each year. But what makes this year unique?

The “Bhartiya Vayu Sena,” often known as the Indian Air Force, is an essential component of India’s armed forces. The British Empire initially declared this day in October 1932, and it went into effect the following year, in 1933.

At Sukhna Lake in Chandigarh, approximately 80 aircraft, including a single-engine MiG-21, will provide a spectacular display this year. A new battle uniform will also be unveiled by the army commander.

The aircraft will perform five formations on October 8; these include a three-aircraft formation by LCH, an Eklavya formation, Sekhon, and more.

The Indian government is making every effort to strengthen the nation’s defence capabilities. 15 Light Combat Helicopters Made in India were recently added to the defence, with 10 going to the air force and five to the army. During the flypast, the LCH will be one of three aircraft in the formation.

The “Sekhon” formation, whichh will include a Rafale, Tejas, Mirage 2000, and Jaguar, will be another one for the celebration.

The Globe and Eklavya formations will be two additional formations that will be staged. A C-17 heavy lift plane and nine Hawk-132 from the Surya Kiran team will be sent out for the Globe formation. Mi-35 attacking helicopters with four Apache helicopters will lead the Eklavya formation.

Finally, an IL-76 and two AN-32 aircraft will lead the Big Boy formation.

The celebrations won’t include Cheetah or Chetak helicopters. On October 8, there will be a parade in the morning, after which the chief would reveal new uniforms for air force members, an Indian Air Force officer told reporters, according to PTI.
