To say am thrilled to see the Rafale jets entering the Indian air space and landing at Ambala would be an understatement. I actually was very emotional for some reason when I heard the exchange between the Rafale pilot and the Naval warship.
Here’s a photo story ….
In Oct, I clicked this picture on our television. This is Mr. Rajnath Singh doing the shastra puja for the Rafale in France.
I clicked this picture when the Rafale jets entered the Indian airspace today, a few minutes before landing at the Ambala AirForce station.
Someone had shared this Amul poster, which was just right –
There is a lot of excitement on social media and the news channels. Several experts shared their opinion on this addition to the Air Force.
I have been in awe of fighter jets ever since dad was posted at the Dindigul Air Force station. Seeing them take off is a sight that you never forget. At that time, women weren’t inducted into the AirForce as fighter jet pilots so I didn’t even apply. Last year I read the news of Bhawana Kanth becoming the 1st Indian woman fighter jet pilot with a lot of pride and happiness.
Hope she gets to fly the Rafale sometime.
Remembering our earlier Defense Minister, the late Manohar Parikkar, who brought the Rafale deal to fruition…. A Truly Great Man – leaves too soon 🙁.
Indian Air Force – Touch the Skies with Glory !!! Jai Hind.
