Tejas fighter to fly in Sri Lanka Air Force celebrations in Colombo hopes to boost sales prospects


The Indian Air Force aerobatic display teams, the fixed wing “Suryakirans" and the rotary wing "Sarang", along with a Tejas fighter, arrived in Sri Lanka today. 


The Suryakirans, Sarang and LCA Tejas will participate in an Air Show at Galle Face, Colombo, scheduled from 03–05th March as part of the 70th anniversary celebrations of SLAF.


This will provide the SLAF an opportunity to examine more closely the Tejas light fighter, which India hopes to sell Colombo, the deal sweetened with a line of credit from New Delhi.


Also pitching hard is Islamabad, which hopes to sell the SLAF the Chinese-Pakistani JF-17 Thunder. Pakistan too is reported to have mustered up a $50 million line of credit.


The IAF Suryakiran Aerobatic Team had earlier toured Sri Lanka in 2001, for the 50th anniversary celebrations of SLAF. 

 

"IAF and SLAF have seen active exchanges and interactions for a number of years in diverse fields like training, operational exchanges and through professional military education courses. IAFs participation in the 70th anniversary celebration of SLAF is a further manifestation of the strong professional bonds that the two Air Forces share," said the IAF today.

  1. Shukla Ji,
    Why are we using that $50million USD credit line story when pak's own papers are using $10 million USD line of credit on their news items?
    Please confirm it and edit the news.
