Singh, who is 97-years-old, was the Chief of the Air Staff during the 1965 conflict with Pakistan and is India’s oldest living legend.

 

He is considered a constant source of inspiration to many generations of air-warriors.

It was a heart melting moment to see, Singh regal the 22-23-year-old trio with his anecdotes as he felicitated them at his house in New Delhi.

 



The three women fighter pilots were recently inducted  in the fighter stream which is far more strenuous and demanding in nature as compared to piloting transport and helicopter streams where women till now were posted.

The three women pilots- Avani Chaturvedi, Bhawana Kanth, and Mohana Singh were inducted in Indian Air Force fighter squadron in June this year and are currently undergoing advanced training.

Issuing a statement on the historic meeting, the IAF said:
