Air Chief Marshal RKS Bhadauria today said the Indian Air Force (IAF) needs to be alert at all times amid the “present security environment in the neighbourhood”. Addressing IAF personnel and their families on the 87th birth anniversary of the Air Force, he said all “Air Warriors should serve with great integrity at all times”. The Indian Air Force (IAF) is celebrating its 87th birth anniversary with a grand event at Hindon Air Force Station in Ghaziabad. The day is significant for another reason – Defence Minister Rajnath Singh will take delivery of India’s newest multirole fighter jet Rafale in France today. At Hindon, several IAF transport planes, helicopters and fighter jets are participating in a flypast with Air Chief Marshal RKS Bhadauria in attendance. Army Chief General Bipin Rawat attended the event.
