Brig. VK Atray at Air Force Station Chandigarh

By Brig. VK Atray.

Chandigarh. 25 March 2019. It is cloudy and windy morning at Air Force Station Chandigarh and I am here to be a part of the Chinook induction ceremony into the Indian Air Force (IAF). India finally enters the club of twenty one militaries of the world which operate the double rotor heavy lift helicopters.

The Chief of Air Staff Indian Air Force Air Chief Marshal BS Dhanoa is already on the stage which is all set to welcome this new entrant into the IAF fleet.

Keeping the current situation at the Indo-Pak borders and the vulnerability of the northern states of India
in mind Chandigarh is just the right geographically to station the fleet.
