Air Marshal V.R. Chaudhari, Air Officer Commanding-in-Chief, Western Air Command visited the frontline air base in Jammu on Tuesday. On arrival at the base in Jammu, the AOC-in-C was received by Air Commodore Ajay Singh Pathania, Air Officer Commanding, Air Force Station Jammu, who apprised him of the operational readiness of the base and its ability to undertake the assigned operational tasks under their command.
The AOC-in-C also met and interacted with air warriors of the station and its lodger units during the course of his visit. He lauded the focused efforts put in by the station in maintaining proficiency in all roles envisaged and urged them to continue performing their duty with due diligence.
This visit must be seen as an important signal to both China and Pakistan that the IAF is fully ready to tackle a two front war scenario, if Pakistan and China both create adverse situation for India.
