New Delhi: Indian Air Force (IAF) contingent is all prepared to perform at the Dubai Air Show 21 that will be held from November 14 to 18 at Al Maktoum International airport. IAF contingent, consisting of Sarang, Suryakiran and Tejas, will be showcasing their capabilities at the show.
According to IAF Twitter, Tejas will showcase its superior flying ability, manouverability and ease of handling against the golden backdrop.
The IAF has been invited by the UAE government to perform along with some of the best aerobatics and display teams in the world. After arriving in Dubai, the contingent received a warm welcome by HE Staff Maj Gen Staff Pilot Ishaq Saleh Mohammed al-Balushi of the UAE Armed Forces and other officers of the UAE Air Force.
The ministry of defence said the induction of five Advanced Light Helicopters (ALH) Dhruvs of the Sarang Team, 10 BAE Hawk 132s of the Suryakiran Team and the three LCA Tejas was completed by November 9, 2021. The induction was supported by the IAF’s C-17 Globemaster IIIs and C-130J Super Hercules.
The Sarang Team has already participated in the Al Ain Grand Prix in UAE in 2005, but it will be for the first time Suryakirans and the Tejas will show off their swashbuckling aerial manoeuvres in the Dubai Air Show.
