Great Journey - Indian Air Force: Touch The Sky With Glory

Indian Air Force Day is being observed today. On this day, the Indian Air Force was established in 1932. The Air Force is celebrating the 89th Raising Day this year. Many people would not know that before independence, the Air Force was known as the Royal Indian Air Force. The first Indian air force squad was formed on April 1, 1933. At that time, it included 6 RAF trend officers and 19 air soldiers.

The Indian Air Force played a key role in World War II. After Independence, the word 'Royal' was removed from it. Before independence, the Air Force was controlled by the Army. The credit for 'liberating' the Air Force from the Army goes to The First Commander-in-Chief of the Indian Air Force, Air Marshal Sir Thomas W. Elmhirst. He was the first Chief of the Indian Air Force, Air Marshal. He held the post from 15 August 1947 to 22 February 1950. Tell us that the motto of the Indian Air Force is 'Nabh: Sprishan Deeptam'. This sentence is taken from chapter 11 of the Gita. This sentence is a part of lord Krishna's sermon to Arjuna in the battlefield of Kurukshetra during the Mahabharata war.

The Air Force flag is blue in colour other than the Air Force symbol, with the national flag tricolour in the first quarter of it. In the central part is a circle made up of all the three colours of the national flag (saffron, white and green). The flag was adopted by the Indian Air Force in 1951.
