Encounter in Kutch

Three Cheers for the IAF for shooting down the Pakistani Airplanes over Kutch. You should do a story on the shooting down and expose the impractciality of a "Training Mission" in a Hot area.

I recently accessed your site to know the facts about Indo-Pak confrontation, and must appreciate your efforts to provide such an objective account of the events. I have printed every page therein for future reference. However, I would have really enjoyed a short summary for the entire war.

I operate an ex-Swiss Hunter in South Africa and am always on the lookout for parts and AVPIN - I had hoped to acquire and preserve in airworthy condition an IAF Hunter, but it seems I am too late, they've probably been broken up already - a tragedy! I enjoyed going through your site - thanks!

reason to be proud to be INDIAN. Good job on obtaining and tastefully aranging all your details. i am in America at the moment but i plan to go back to India just as soon as i complete my degree and join the IAF. Looking forward to it. A message to the Pakistani---We will take you out anytime, anywhere----just name it. Our MIG-29's and SU-30's are the best.---see ya jagan

Appreciation for job well done

Dear Jagan

I'm happy that Indian Air Force is so good in doing its job. I would like to thank all fighter pilots who have done a very good job for our country. I'm not an airman but my Papa is airman so I'm in touch with Indian Airforce. I also like to thank all the persons who were involved in Kargil sector and lost their livies for the country.
Indian Airforce has done a very good job.

Indian AirForce War 1965

Hello : I read your site on Indian Air Force and was very, very impressed. Particularly, since you have taken the trouble to re-create the IAF war in 1965. I had seen details on the 1971 war but the 1965 war has remained elusive. Can I ask you where you got this information.

I have a particular interest in 1965 since my father Late Sqn. Ldr. N. K. Malik was killed in action in this war. This is the first time I have read how he died and I am thrilled and very proud. You cannot believe how happy I am to have read this at my age of 36, having lost him when I was 2 years old. I would like to find out more about his role in the war and so was wondering if you would be willing to share with me, where you go this information on the war.

If there is a way I can contribute to you efforts let me know.

The Great Indian Air Force

Dear Jagan,

You are a genious. Your site is so excellent, interesting and truthful that I must have visited it atleast 15 times. Now I look forward to your accomplishment of the IAF's role in the 1971 war.

I visted the paki sites too but they are liars and they only know how to do negative propoganda against India. It seems the pakis have forgotten the 65 & 71 beatings.

My father was a airman in the IAF. During the 65 conflict I was not in my senses being a 6 months old infant and were posted in Barrackpore AFB. By the time 71 conflict broke out, I can recollect the night sky lit up by our A-A fire. This time we were posted at the Chandigarh AFB.

I would appreciate an acknowledgement from you if you wish any future accomplishment of the 1971 conflict. Any help needed, most welcome. Also thanks to Rakesh Koshy.

God Bless you. Jai Hind!!

Best Regards

Good Work

dear Jagan,
Congratulations for having maintained such a great website. As I am a warbird enthusiast myself, I have a couple of questions . I'd be thankful to you if you could answer them.
1. Do you know the history of Liberator HE924 (at the IAF museum)?
2. Are there any transport warbirds preserved anywhere else in India (other than the ones in the IAF museum) ?

Great site ! (and a few comments on the furious rhetoric to be found on this guestbook)


For starters - you've got a really impresive site here - loved browsing through the various images and reading the commentry. Regarding my interest in military afairs - it goes way back to 1989 when I was associated in some ways with the Indian Navy - since then, I have managed to keep myself updated (as far as possible) on the navy and air force front (world-wide, not just the Indian scenario), but my knowledge on ground warfare is minimal (that's putting it kindly). Things be as they may, apart from the fighting forces, my interests include geopolitics etc - I'm more of a strategic guy than a tactical one - if you know what I mean.

In the light of the above statement, I cannot but help comment on some of the rhetoric I've seen posted here by some of the visitors on your site. Talks of "nuking Pakistan" or "nuking India".. or even fighting another war... while one cannot expect peop

thanks for your reply.
I am wondering if S/L Trevor Keelor was awarded Vir Chakra for shooting F/L Yusaf Ali Khan??
If he was, than I have a picture of his demaged plane at Sargodha air base (Sabre #53870) proving that the pilot was awarded kill incorrectly.
F/L Yusaf and his Sabre flew again for the duration of this war with in few days after receiving repair.
any comments???

PAF only accepted one loss of F/L Afzal Khan and you also described in detail how his body was found. Who was the other pilot? You dont mention his name or about recovering his body.

Overall Site, and future Conflict IAF vs. PAF

we, their citizenry, who have paid the taxes to support the militaries of both countries should get our money's worth ! I look forward to the next Indo-Pak war, may it come soon. With IAF having nearly 1000 fighter aircraft Vs. PAFs 500 it should be even more interesting than the last 2 wars. And interceptions will be MUCH more likely to occur resulting in more air-air combat this time around. Hooray for CNN !!!

Overall Site, and future Conflict IAF vs. PAF

Well maintained and organized and seemingly objective, although your account is only as good as the info you rely on, and I'm convinced the IAF never made certain things public. I enjoyed reading the operational details of the IAFs account of the war. Its a pity there are some Indian & Pakistani people who do not understand simple civility and resort to crude characterizations of the "enemy", who have posted msgs in your guestbook that serve no constructive purpose.
I for one however, being a fighter enthusiast, and of Pakistani nationality, look forward to the day when the IAF & the PAF resume dueling in the skys over both countries simply and purely from a sporting point of view. As long as nuclear war is averted ... there's no harm in having another war over the unresolved (and peacefully unresolveable) Kashmir dispute. Afterall, both nations have spent a lot of money on buying a lot of expensive toys, we, their citizenry, who

New Chief of Air Staff

I live in the UK and I note with great delight that Air mArshal Tipnis is to suceed Air Chief Marshal Sareen as the new Chief of Air Staff.

I believe he is the right man for the job, given the difficulties the IAF has had w.r.t. pay issues. Air Marshal Tipnis should bring balance and diplomacy to the force and his tenure will be seen to be one of calm and fairness.

He is after all my father-in-law!!

Gallantry Awards

Vinod Patney (VrC) is currently C-in-C WAC. I am pretty sure that he flew in 1 Sqn as well with VK Bhatia and PC Chopra. In Dec 1996, I met VK 'Jimmy' Bhatia (he is C-in-C as well, I think, of one of the Commands, at the time he was at AHQ) after a long period and as we got to chatting, he told me about flying in the 'famous Black formation'. There were four members, Bhatia, Chopra, Patney and one more whose name escapes me. I am fairly sure, too, that Bhatia and Chopra got their VrC's for the Sargodha raid, so its possible that Patney got his for the same reason. Anyway, none of this is positive but might be worth checking out. I'll try and find out more on my next trip to India.

Once again, congratulations on an excellent page. I wish some comments in the guestbook were a little more civilized.

There will always be conflict where there are differences. Sad part is that Pakistan was once India. As a child I grew up in India, and as a four year old I remember the air-raid-sirens real well. My father remembers how he had to leave hyderabad sindh in 1947, as a four year old. The IAF has made many improvements and have made a strong commitment to their arsenal as well as pilots. There are no winners in war, but Jagan memories are worth a million thoughts! Keep up the good work. God Bless the IAF.

Just thought I'd drop you a line to let you know that I think you have an excellent site! From both a historical and a technical perspective. And I learnt a few things too. I never realised that the Ajeet was a right little arse-kicker, to us Brits it was always considered to be a trainer. Also, I never realised that the Marut acheived operational status! Ignorance on my part I suppose, but just another example of 'never knowing enough' about military history.
As an ex-engineer in the RAF, plane lover and all round history head, I fully appreciate your efforts to educate the ignorant amongst us.
Here in the UK we have difficulty understanding the animosity between India and Pakistan as we have LARGE communities of both nationalities so this 'forgotten conflict' will be quite an eye-opener for some. Conflict isn't the answer to differences but it's always been with us and doesn't seem to want to leave.

Great site - it's good to see the Indian Air Force getting more and more coverage on the web, as I feel it's one of the most interesting forces with such varied equipment and a history of combat success. And, of course, so many UK-originated types in use, my primary interest!

Dear Jaggu,
The site is really good. We Indians really require such websites which will boost the image of our Indian Military people.
Please do carry on

PAF Air Chief Picture

You should copy the PAF Air Chief's recent picture from Jane's IDR page which shows him sitting in an F-16 and put it next to his POW picture. It would make a good BEFORE and AFTER sequence!

Excellent ! very well done, I am eagerly awaiting the completion of the remaining chapters.
Nice to know that the PAKi Air Chief, has had the taste of being shot down and being captured.

Good work Jagan !

Good work. Look forward to the remaining chapters on the 1965 conflict. It would be interesting to compare the claims of the respective Air Forces in this conflict.

Congratulations on a great site. Some updating with regard to recent equipment would be useful. Anxiously await completion of pages about the 1965 war, which I remember as a young boy of 11 years.

Keep up the good work,
