In a first, IAF to participate in LIMA exercise with Malaysian Air Force

In a first, the Indian Air Force (IAF) will participate in the Maritime Aero Expo “Langkawi International Maritime Aero Expo (LIMA-2019)”, which is scheduled to happen in Malaysia from March 26-30. 

In the exercise, the IAF will showcase its indigenously developed LCA fighter aircraft. 

The team departed from Air Force Station Kalaikunda for Langkawi on Friday via Myanmar (Yangon).

Participation of IAF in LIMA-2019 will provide an opportunity to air-warriors to interact with their Royal Malaysian Air Force (RMAF) counterparts and foster close relationship between the two services. 

This will serve as a foundation for any future interaction with the Malaysian Air Force. 

It will also provide an opportunity to RMAF to assess the capabilities of LCA.

IAF contingent consists of 02 x LCA, 01 x C-130J and one x IL-76 ac along with 27 officers, 42 air-warriors and 11 HAL personnel.
