Three Cheers for the IAF for shooting down the Pakistani Airplanes over Kutch. You should

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
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.

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

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

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 !!! (We'll get to watch

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

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.
