Grand celebrations mark 86th anniversary of Indian Air Force

Published: October 8, 2018

STORY: A scintillating air display by various aircrafts as well as an impressive parade along with an investiture ceremony marked the 86th anniversary celebrations of the Indian Air Force on Monday (October 08).

Air Force Day is observed every year on October 8.

Hundreds of air force personnel took part in activities as part of the programme to commemorate the day at the Hindon Air Force Station in Ghaziabad on the outskirts of the national capital, New Delhi.

Air Force Day was observed for the first time in 1932, when India was under British rule. At that time, the Indian Air Force was an auxiliary of the Empire.

The Indian Air Force safeguards the Indian territory and has been pivotal in providing help during natural calamities, like during the floods in northern Uttarakhand state in 2011.
