The Indian Navy on 11 May decommissioned its fleet of iconic Sea Harriers. This episode of decommissioning marked the end of an era in India’s naval history, as the country holds an official ceremony phasing out the last of its iconic Sea Harrier jets.
These planes will be replaced with new generation MIG-29 K fighters in a ceremony on INS Hansa near Vasco. Wing Commander Shikhu Raj, a Sea Harrier Pilot himself and the commander of the squadron handed over the command of the squadron to Captain KHV Singh in an historic ceremony and bid adieu to the Sea Harriers. The function was presided over by the Chief of Naval Staff Admiral RK Dhowan.
So let’s do:
1. Name the fighter planes, Which has recently decommissioned ?
2. Who is the Chief of Naval Staff ?
