Guwahati: Indian Air Force has said that it may conduct an air show in Arunachal Pradesh.
Air Marshal SP Dharkar, the AOC-in-C of the Eastern Air Command said, “It is challenging to hold an air show in a hilly terrain like that of Arunachal Pradesh, but it is still an “interesting” idea for the force to have an air show there.”
His comments came on a query if the IAF will ever conduct an air show in Arunachal Pradesh, the first-ever such display of the force’s air power in the strategically crucial state bordering China to display its prowess.
He also said, “May be you will cover the next air show that we will hold in some locations in Arunachal Pradesh in the near future.”
The IAF is celebrating its 91st anniversary and to mark this it organised an air show at Borjhar station in Guwahati on Sunday involving various choppers and fighter aircraft like Sukhoi-30 and Rafale.
