India’s Republic Day celebrations will include a never seen before display by the Indian Air Force (IAF) this year, said IAF PRO Wing Commander Indranil Nandi. The IAF will organize the “grandest, largest” flypast at the Republic Day Parade.

According to Nandi, 75 aircrafts will fly over Rajpath on Jan. 26 to commemorate the 75 years of Independence. “The flypast this year will be the grandest and largest with 75 aircraft from IAF, Army and Navy flying during the Republic Day parade. This is in line with the Azadi ka Amrut Mahotsav celebrations,” he said.
