Air Force Chief (Air Chief Marshal) RSK Bhadauria can fly MiG-21 in Srinagar on Wednesday, on the first anniversary of Balakot Airstrike. There is a possibility that the Air Force Chief can fly MiG-21 Bison with 51 Squadron. 51 squadron is the same unit that carried out the Balakot Airstrike. Wing Commander Abhinandan, who was in the news at that time, was associated with this unit and he was flying a MiG-21 bison. Mirage 2000 fighter aircraft can also be included in the fleet of Air Force Chief Bhadoria.
Air Force Chief RSK Bhadoria will address a seminar on February 28 at the DRDO Bhavan in Delhi. The seminar is titled – Indian Air Force: No War, No Peace. Bhadoria can give information about Balakot Airstrike in this seminar. They can throw light on how the Air Force carried out its operations that day.
Let me tell you, BS Dhano was handling the command of the Air Force at the time of Balakot Airstrike. At the time, Dhanoa told the news agency ANI on Wednesday on the answer given to Pakistan, "One year has passed and when we look back, we are satisfied." After Balakot Airstrike, we have got to learn a lot, many things have been implemented after that. Dhanoa said, after that incident, there has been a change in our way of functioning. The other side never believed that we could attack the terrorist training camp inside Pakistan but we showed it by doing it successfully.
Former army chief BS Dhanoa said, "There was no major terrorist attack in the country's elections after the Balakot airstrikes because they were afraid that we would again respond in the same manner or even more devastatingly." Let me tell you that on February 27, Wing Commander Abhinandan, who came from 51 Squadron, killed an F-16 of Pakistan who entered the Indian border. Abigandan's MiG-21 Bison was also attacked while chasing F-16. He was taken into custody by the Pakistani Army and released the very next day.
Last year, Abhinandan was awarded the gallantry medal Vir Chakra on Independence Day. Five Mirage 2000 pilots who conducted an air raid on Balakot were also awarded the Air Force Medal. On February 27, on behalf of Pakistan, Squadron Leader Minty Aggarwal of 601 Signal Unit was also awarded the War Service Medal for controlling Indian warplanes for infiltrating Indian airspace.
