Published on 3 November, 2016 at 10:08 pm By

While Chinese PLA troops came deep inside Indian territory in Ladakh and blocked the construction of a canal, the Indian Air Force took one major step in the far east to counter a possible threat from China.

An IAF C-17 Globemaster landed on the Mechuka Advanced Landing Ground (ALG) in Arunachal Pradesh on Thursday.

The ALG is situated at an elevation of 6,200 feet above sea level. The town was one of the key areas of battle in 1962 Indo-China war.

A Globemaster is a transport aircraft which is capable of carrying upto 150 troops. With its successful landing on the ALF, the Indian Air Force can now boast of a stronger defence structure and quick response capability along the Indian border with China in the state.

Previously, the IAF’s main fighter the Sukhoi Su-30 MKI made successful landing at the ALG in Pasighat. India has been quickly developing other ALGs in Arunachal Pradesh, which were left ignored for a long time following the 1962 war.
