Default To ttmountainman: Fighter Pilot

Sorry for my curiosity, Vijay. But what type of fighter your father piloted?

Regards. Phil :)

Hi Phil,
My Dad was an Senior instructor and fighter pilot in the Indian Air Force. He got to pilot the Hunter ( Hawker) the Mystere, the Vampire and the Gnat in the early days i.e early 60's to the early 70's.
Later he commanded squadrons flying the Mig 21, the Sukhoi, the Mirage 2000 and finally the Jaguar.He retired before he could fly the Mig 27.

He was decorated with a Vir chakra in the 1965 war against Pakistan.
You can see at this link why...

Hi Vijay :)

I'm really impressed by the honor of your father. I read the web page. He is not a simple pilot : He's a Hero!

One can only take one's hat off to your father!

Regards. Phil.
