A contingent from the Indian Air Force (IAF) has arrived at the Al Maktoum International Airport in Dubai to take part in the biennial Dubai Airshow, scheduled to run from November 13 to November 17, 2023. The IAF contingent includes two domestically manufactured aircraft: the Light Combat Aircraft (LCA) Tejas and the Advanced Light Helicopter (ALH) Dhruv. The Tejas will be featured in both static displays and aerial performances at the Airshow, while the Sarang Helicopter Display Team will showcase their formation aerobatics skills. This marks the second consecutive appearance for the Tejas and the Sarang display teams at the Dubai Airshow, as they also participated in the 2021 edition, promising to captivate the audience once again.
The Indian Air Force (IAF) contingent has been transported to the venue by its C-17 Globemaster III transport aircraft. These teams are scheduled to make their debut performance at the opening ceremony on November 13, 2023, and subsequently, they will join other prominent international aerial display teams in the airspace. This occasion provides a valuable opportunity to highlight the significant progress achieved by the Indian Aviation Industry, emphasizing the participation of domestically developed platforms such as the Tejas and Dhruv.
