REPUBLIC DAY 2012 - FLY PAST- AN IAF APPEAL

REPUBLIC DAY 2012 - FLY PAST- AN IAF APPEAL
In view of the flypast at heights varying from 60 to 500 metres and the associated flight safety concerns posed by birds, the IAF appeals to all citizens of Delhi and its neighbourhood to keep their areas clean and avoid throwing eatables, garbage, dead animals or carcasses in the open in all the days leading upto 26 January.

Responsible citizens are also requested to alert the nearest Air Force Unit or Police Station and report instances of carcasses found in the open. The vulnerable areas that come in the route include Palam, Najafgarh drains, Tihar Jail, War Cemetery and areas adjoin Rashtrapati Bhavan.


IAF Tableau showcases the men from our special forces and special operations capabilities of the Indian Air Force. We have the C-130J Super Hercules the World’s most advanced and tactical aircraft. The Aircraft has already demonstrated its responsiveness during the recent Sikkim earthquake where it undertook relief operations within three hours. Also on the tableau is the latest acquisition in the IAF-Mi-17 V5 Helicopter. This multipurpose Helicopter is intended for airlift of Special Forces to combat area , both by day and night. These two platforms will cater to the need of joint operation with Army Commandos, Marine Commandos, IAF’s Garuds and NSG Commandos.    
RD MARCHING CONTINGENT
            The IAF Marching contingent comprises of 4 officers and 144 Airmen. The Contingent will commanded by Flt Lt Sneha Shekhawat and will be followed by 3 supernumerary officers. The Air Force contingent will marches abreast in 12 by 12 formation.
IAF BAND
            The IAF Band consists of 72 musicians and three drum majors.  The Band will be led by Sergeant M Thakur , Drum Major. The Band will will play the tune ‘Air Battle’ especially selected for the occasion in front of the Dias.

BIRDS POSE A SERIOUS THREAT TO AIRCRAFT FLYING AT LOW LEVELS. EATABLES THROWN OUT IN THE OPEN ATTRACT BIRDS, TO ENSURE A SAFE FLY PAST, THE INDIAN AIR FORCE REQUESTS THE CITIZENS OF DELHI, AND ITS NEIGHBOURHOOD NOT TO THROW EATABLES AND GARBAGE IN THE OPEN. ALSO, IF THEY FIND ANY CARCASS OUT IN THE OPEN THEY ARE REQUESTED TO REPORT TO THE NEAREST AIR FORCE UNIT / POLICE STATION TO ARRANGE FOR ITS DISPOSAL.
