Eastern Bridge – II

 The exercise, named “Ex Eastern Bridge - 2011” is the second of the series, the first was held in Oct 2009 ,of joint exercise between the Indian Air Force (IAF) and the Royal Air Force of Oman (RAFO) .It held in Jamnagar.

The 04 day long exercise involved a variety of flying missions from each other’s best practices in terms of operational, maintenance and administrative procedures. The exercise gave vast exposure to the aircrew of RAFO and IAF, towards missions involving long duration sorties with in flight refueling, large force strike packages, air to ground bombing and maritime strike roles routinely performed by the IAF both independently and in mixed operations.

This exercise did not only enrich the IAF and RAFO professionally but culturally also as the Omani people and Indians share a similar culture. The Ex provided an opportunity of rich interaction between the personnel of both countries.
