Nagpur, Sept 19 : Indian Air Force (IAF) planes enthralled spectators with their dazzling aerobatic maneuvers in an air show organised in Nagpur today.
Hundreds of people including students from various schools of the city gathered to watch the swashbuckling show featuring IAF aerobatic team Surya Kiran (Ray of Light).
The formation of three planes with tails oozing out smoke creating virtual colours of the flag in the sky earned loud applause from the spectators.
IAF officers said the show is intended not only to entertain spectators but also to educate the young generation about the air force.
"The main aim of today's nine aircraft display was to show the skills of the IAF before the people of Nagpur. We also intend to motivate young people and students to join the defence services," said J.K.Kurian, Wing Commander, IAF.
The students, who came to watch the show, described it as majestic. Apart from aerobatics, Para jumpers of the IAF demonstrated their precision skills during the show.
The IAF holds many air shows and exhibitions across the country on different occasions to create an awareness among people about the glory of the defence services.
