NEW DELHI (PTI): The indigenous airborne early warning aircraft and the Russian-origin Mi-17 V5 helicopter would be displayed for the first time by Indian Air Force (IAF) at the parade here to mark its 80th anniversary.

"The Airborne Early Warning and Control (AWAC) system aircraft and the Mi-17 V5 would be showcased for the first time at the IAF day parade this year on October 8," IAF officials said here.

They said the Mi-V5s will be part of the flying display whereas the under-development aircraft will be part of the static display.

The aerial display will commence with flag bearing sky divers of 'AKASH GANGA' Team dropping out of AN-32 aircraft, they said.

The other aircraft taking part in the aerial drill will include the C-130J Super Hercules transport aircraft, Su-30MKI, Mirage 2000, MiG-series and Jaguar combat aircraft.

IAF has also requested people living around the Hindan air base near here to maintain cleanliness to avoid attracting birds towards the aircraft flying area.

The annual IAF Day parade was being held at the Palam air base here for more than four decades but it was shifted to Hindan base to avoid inconvenience to the commercial flight operations from the IGI airport.
