NEW DELHI: Another father-son duo has generated sonic booms on fighter jets together. What made it special was that it was the IAF chief himself and his son, and that too on the new Rafale omni-role fighter jets from an airbase close to the Sikkim-Bhutan-Tibet tri-junction on the eastern front with China. Air Chief Marshal V R Chaudhari flew a sortie with his son Squadron Leader Mihir V Chaudhari as part of a combat training mission of three Rafales from the Hasimara airbase in West Bengal on September 6.
“The sortie flown by the chief and his son is a continuation of IAF’s finest traditions and underlines the importance accorded to grooming and preparing our young leaders for the challenges of the future,” an officer said on Friday. “The chief reviewed and appreciated the operational preparedness of the airbase and interacted with the personnel stationed there,” he added. The IAF has inducted 36 twin-engine Rafales under the Rs 59,000 crore deal inked with France in September 2016. After basing the first 18 of the 4.5-generation jets at the Ambala airbase, the IAF had last year kicked off the deployment of the next 18 at Hasimara.
Squadron Leader Chaudhari is part of the second Rafale squadron, nicknamed 101 ‘Falcons of Chhamb and Akhnoor’, at Hasimara.
Deployment of the French-origin Rafales in the eastern sector, along with the Russian-origin Sukhoi-30MKI fighters , gives IAF a greater offensive punch against China.
