Naval jets to return at RD parade

Jan 09, 2015

After a gap of three decades, the Indian Navy will fly its fighter jets over Rajpath during this year's Republic Day parade, even as the three forces get ready to bring out all-women contingents to the ceremony for the first time.

US-made P-8I long-range maritime patrol and anti-submarine warfare aircraft will lead the naval contingent. Also showcased during the parade would be India's first supersonic fighter - the newly-acquired Russian-made MAG-29K. Two such fighter aircraft will take part in the ceremony.

This would be the first appearance of naval fighters on the Rajpath after a gap of almost three decades. In 1984, naval aviator Arun Prakash, who rose to become the Navy chief, flew with Sea Harrier jets over the Rajpath. That was the last time when naval combat aircraft came to the capital.
