Armed Forces pay tribute to corona warriors
The armed forces salute the coronavirus warriors on Sunday. A countrywide fly-past has been conducted by aircraft of the Indian Air Force from Srinagar to Thiruvanathapuram and Dibrugarh to Kutch. Helicopters from the IAF and Indian Navy are flying over hospitals treating coronavirus patients and showering petals as a tribute to the coronavirus warriors. Army bands are also conducting mounted band displays.
The three services are performing a show of solidarity and appreciation for the Corona warriors. In the morning there was wreath laying at The National Police Memorial in Delhi.
IAF is conducting a nationwide fly-past, which will cover Srinagar to Trivandrum and another one starting from Dibrugarh in Assam to Kutch in Gujarat. MIG 21, Sukhois and helicopters are also part of the air display. Transport Aircrafts such as C130 and C17 carrying the load are also flying over the NCR.
It is to be noted that this show is being combined with the routine training and no aircraft is getting airborne for just the Fly-past.
This means that none of the aircraft which are seen flying across several cities are getting airborne for training, as well as some carrying load.
The Navy on its part will be deploying warships in formations in coastal areas in the evening. The Navy and Coast Guard ships on the western and eastern seaboard will be lit up, in harbour as well as offshore. The military bands of the Army will play martial music across cantonments and Army Bases from the mountains to the deserts.
