AGARTALA (PTI): A Sukhoi warplane of the Indian Air Force has landed at the Agartala airport to check the landing and take-off facility.

"One Sukhoi war plane today (Sept 15) landed at the Agartala airport to see the practicality of landing and take-off facility during war. Another such fighter aircraft is also likely to land today," S Deb Burman, Director of Airport Authority of India (AII) said.

Sukhoi is a multi-role air superiority fighter developed by Russia's Sukhoi Company and built under license by India's Hindustan Aeronautics Limited (HAL) for the Indian Air Force.

It is a heavy, all-weather, long-range fighter.

Among the four airports in Tripura, only Agartala airport is operational and the rest at Khowai, Kamalpur and Kailashahar are abandoned.

All the airports in Tripura are located near the Indo-Bangla international border.
