Air Force Day (8 Oct)
On the occasion of the Air Force Day – 8th October, 2018, I convey my heartfelt greetings and best wishes to the Officer and Staff of the Indian Air Force.
The Indian Air Force has been discharging its arduous duties and responsibilities of protecting the unity and territorial integrity of our nation, with utmost dedication, zeal and élan. I salute all our air force personnel on Air Force Day. They have always served India with great courage and determination. Contribution of our Air Force is monumental. They are always at the forefront, be it in protecting skies or in times of disasters. The Indian Air Force has made a lot of technological advancements in the last few years. New aircrafts and helicopters inducted shows the progress and development in the field creating a new benchmark each time in the history of the Indian Air Force.
I hope that, in keeping with the emerging national and international challenges, the Indian Air Force will continue to execute its duties with ever-greater devotion, dynamism and responsibility.
