Must read

Delhi, Feb 25: As the Singapore Airshow drew to an end, the Sarang Helicopter Display Team of the Indian Air Force presented their last display for the event at the Changi Exhibition Centre today.

It is noteworthy that it was at this very venue that the Sarangs began their journey 20 years ago, when they performed their first public display as a three helicopter display team for the Asian Aerospace Show in February 2004. Since then the Sarangs have graduated to a four helicopter display, and recently have included a five helicopter display profile to their achievements.

Apart from thrilling aerobatics displays, nationally and internationally, the Sarang Team has also undertaken numerous HADR operations. The Team was at the forefront in Uttarakhand during the flash floods of 2013, wherein the Unit helicopters rescued close to 1000 people and inducted 12 tonnes of relief material at altitudes in excess of 10,000 feet in inclement weather and hazardous terrain.

The Unit has also been involved in providing succor to the people affected by floods in its area of responsibility from time to time; rescue and relief operations in Chennai, Dindigul, Tirupathi and Nellore are a few worth mentioning. In the recent past, the team was one of the first responders for HADR missions during the Cyclone Okhi in Dec 2017, the devastating floods in Kerala in Aug 2018 and Tuticorin floods in Dec 2023.

The achievements of the Sarang Team are synonymous with the rapid strides of the Indian aviation industry, which has diversified into development and production of state of the art helicopters and fighters. In the near future, the country is also expected to produce it’s first transport aircraft, the C-295.
