Painted in the colors of the Thunderbolts, this is a new addition to IAF Museum Palam. IAF’s aerobatic team formed under Wg Cdr PS Brar that was a joy to watch in its day. Thunderbolts were from No. 20 Sqn. “Lightnings”.
Restored Tempest on display at IAF Museum Palam. It’s great to see stencils on the fuselage and the chakra worn by RIAF aircraft from 1947-50 replacing the roundels. A total of 233 Tempests served with the RIAF and IAF.
