Chandigarh all Geared Up to Host 90th Air Force Day on Oct 8


Chandigarh: Preparations are underway with full gusto and enthusiasm at the Sukhna Lake in Chandigarh to celebrate the 90th Indian Air Force Day falling on October 8. This year’s celebration is historic and a matter of great pride for the Tricity denizens. It is the first time the event is not being hosted at the Hindon air base located in the National Capital Region on the outskirts of Delhi, but in our own City Beautiful.

The novelty in the air show this time around is the participation of the first batch of indigenously developed light combat helicopters (LCH) ‘Prachand’ inducted into the force just a few days ago.
