- On reaching the Indian Ocean, naval ship INS Kolkata told Rafale’s crew- Happy landing
- Defense Minister said- the birds landed safely in Ambala, Rafael’s descent on India’s land begins new era
After covering a distance of 7 thousand kilometers from France, 5 Rafael landed at Ambala airbase at around 3.15 pm on Wednesday afternoon.
Rafael flew for a while thundering the sky of Ambala and then made a smooth landing at the airbase.
The five Rafaels landed one after the other on the same airstrip. After this he was given the Water Cannon Salute.
Rafael was received by several officers of the Western Air Command, including Air Chief Marshal Air Marshal RKS Bhadaia. Rafael is the first squadron of the 17th Golden Arrow Squadron at Ambala Airbase. After 22 years, India has got 5 new fighter planes. Earlier in 1997, India received Sukhoi from Russia.
This aircraft, which has the power to carry tummy weapons, is the only fighter aircraft in the world that has the power to destroy the enemy even from a height of 55 thousand feet. The most important thing is that this capability is not with the army of both our neighbors Pakistan and China.
