Lakshadweep, Mar 25 (ANI): An Indian army pilot created a unique record in flying by covering two main islands of Lakshadweep on the Indian coast by a Para motor at a height of over 2000 feet.
Ramvir Singh, an expert Para pilot, undertook the entire expedition which started from Agatti Island covering 12 kilometers in 24 minutes time period.
This was the first time when any Indian attempted a feat of crossing two main islands through Para flying over the sea at such high altitude."Till now, I had only covered one or two kilometer that too, not deep into the sea. It is the first experience of flying 12 kilometers. I gained a lot of experience and also nobody has undertaken such expedition so far," said Ramvir Singh.
The event was held in collaboration with the ongoing Bison Blue Water Expedition being conducted at Lakshadweep Islands to create awareness on environmental conservation and protection of coral reef.
The Indian army Para pilots had created a record earlier in covering the longest flying expedition by covering a distance from Kashmir in extreme north to Kanyakumari in extreme south in a time frame of two months. By Juhan Samuel (ANI)
