Indian Air Force Day, 2020

October 8, 2020

Every year on October 8, the country celebrates Indian Air Force Day to celebrate one of the strongest armed forces in India. This year, the country is celebrating its 88th Indian Air Force Day.

The day intends to raise awareness about the Indian Air Force as an organization that strives to strengthen national security and authority.

The Indian Air Force (IAF) is the air arm of the Indian Armed Forces. Its complement of personnel and aircraft assets ranks 4th amongst the air forces of the world. Its primary mission is to secure Indian airspace and to conduct aerial warfare during armed conflict.
It was officially established on 8 October 1932 as an auxiliary air force of the British Empire which honoured India's aviation service during World War II with the prefix Royal. After India gained independence from the United Kingdom in 1947, the name Royal Indian Air Force was kept and served in the name of Dominion of India. With the Government's transition to a Republic in 1950, the prefix Royal was removed.

A big salute to the prodigious efforts and passion of our protectors.

The Nation and Nationals remain forever in debt to our protectors. Thanking all our air force personnel on this day.
Happy Indian Air Force Day 2020 !!
