India is celebrating the 88th anniversary of the Indian Air Force (IAF) on Thursday (October 8). Prime Minister Narendra Modi took a moment out to extend his best wishes to the Air Force personnel, saying the courage, valour and dedication of its soldiers to protect the country, inspire everyone. Modi tweeted, “You not only keep the skies of the country secure but also play a leading role in the service of humanity during disasters. Your courage, valour and dedication inspires everyone.” The PM also posted a brief video in which he speaks of the IAF’s beginning in 1932 as a force of six pilots and 19 airmen and its rise to become one of the strongest forces in the 21st century.

It is a memorable journey, Modi said, as he praised the IAF and noted the pride and respect it commands from people. President Ram Nath Kovind also honoured the air warriors, veterans and their families. “On Air Force Day, we proudly honour our air warriors, veterans and families of Indian Air Force.
