After almost 6 hours of flight from Air Force Sta­tion Hin­dan, near Del­hi, Group Cap­tain Tejbir Singh, Com­mand­ing Offi­cer of the Her­cules Squadron, accom­plished the task of land­ing at Car Nico­bar Air base.

The crew was received by the Chief Oper­a­tions Offi­cer Wing Com­man­der San­jay M Nijai. The staff from HQ Andaman & Nico­bar Com­mand and Air Com­modore T K Sin­ha were also present on the occa­sion.

The C – 130 J is one of the lat­est war­birds with state-of-the-art avion­ics and defen­sive suites. It has the abil­i­ty to exe­cute spe­cial oper­a­tions involv­ing not only the Air Force ele­ments but also Army and Naval forces to achieve the assigned task by dis­play­ing a great syn­er­gy between them.

This also show cas­es our abil­i­ty and oper­a­tional infra­struc­ture to induct vari­ety of forces & tech­nol­o­gy. This endors­es the vision of our plan­ners to induct this mag­nif­i­cent machine into the tech savvy Indi­an Air Force. It is indeed a proud and his­toric moment which will go down the annals of Indi­an Air Force’s only island base right­ful­ly known as ‘Com­mend­able Car­nic’.
