Airforce Day (08 Oct)
On the occasion of the Air Force Day – 8th October, 2017, I convey my heartfelt greetings and best wishes to the Officers and Staff of the Indian Air Force.
The Indian Air Force has been discharging its tough duties and responsibilities of protecting the unity and integrity of our nation with utmost dedication and zeal. The Motto of the Indian Air Force is “Touch the Sky with Glory”. The Indian Air Force, similarly, aims to overwhelm its adversaries with its sophisticated air power. In every major war that India has fought the Indian Air Force has played a crucial role. It forms one of the most important components of India’s security structure.
I hope that, in keeping with the emerging national and international challenges, the Indian Air Force will continue to discharge their duties with greater dedication and vision.
