New Delhi: The Indian Air Force will celebrate its 89th anniversary on 08 Oct this year. A scintillating air display by various aircraft will be the hallmark of the Air Force Day Parade-cum-investiture Ceremony at Air Force Station Hindan (Ghaziabad).

Rehearsals for the display will commence from 1st October 2021 (Friday). The area over which aircraft will be flying at low levels are Wazirpur bridge -Karwalnagar – Afjalpur -Hindan, Shamli – Jiwana – Chandinagar – Hindan, Hapur – Philkua – Ghaziabad – Hindan.

The Air Display will commence with flag bearing skydivers of the famous AKASH GANGA Team dropping out of AN-32 aircraft in their colourful canopies, at 08:00 AM.

The flypast would include heritage aircraft, modern transport aircraft, and frontline fighter aircraft. The ceremony will conclude at 10:52 AM with the spellbinding aerobatic display.

“Birds pose a very serious threat to flying aircraft, especially at low levels. Eatables thrown out in the open attract birds. To ensure the safety of the aircraft, pilots, and people on the ground, the Indian Air Force requests all citizens of Delhi, Ghaziabad, and its neighbourhood not to throw eatables and garbage in open,” a press release read.

“Also, if they find any carcasses/ dead animals lying out in open, they must report to the nearest air force unit/police station to arrange for its disposal. Also please call/SMS officer in charge of bird hazard combat team (bhct) on cell no. 9434378478,” the release added.
