86th Air Force Day: Nine decades into the India’s guardian angels ensuring that the skies remain safe

The Indian Air Force (IAF), established on 8th October 1932, is one of the most dynamic armed forces in the world, that has fought numerous wars as well as affected scores of civilian rescue operations.

From safeguarding India against China and Pakistan to rescuing stranded civilians affected by natural calamities and civil wars, the IAF has time and again proved its valour and dedication.

India today celebrates its 86th Air Force Day, and our efficacy has only multiplied in these nine decades.  A grand parade-cum-investiture ceremony is being held at the Air Force Station at Hindon near Delhi.
