  • Description

    Thirty-six officers and men of the Indian Air Force Transport Command, led by Wing Commander, led by Wing Commander K.L. Suri, left Palam Airport, New Delhi, Aug 1, for service with United Nations forces in the Congo. Before departure, they were garlanded by Wing Commander Malik on behalf of the entire Indian Air Force.

    In the Congo the Indians will help maintain United States Air Force planes in United Nations employ; American crews are kept out of the Congo for political considerations. This is the first time the Indian Air Force has served the United Nations in a fully independent, self-contained capacity; previously, individual officers have served in special positions.
