Overview

Summary of the Book

Flight of the Himalayan Eagle is a tribute to the men and women of Indian Air Force, who stretch their flying machines to the limits of performance to realize formidable military missions.

Not infrequently, defence operations demand far more ‘power’ and ‘reach’ in their military machines to overcome difficult situations. Shortfalls that arise consequently in military capability take time to correct over years. The ingenuity of the armed forces is the one that fills up the gap in the mean time.

Flight of the Himalayan Eagle is an obvious example of the case. The book graphically recounts how IAF kept alive the lifelines of Army positions in the mountain frontier with aircraft that were only marginally capable of flight operations over the high mountains.

The book opens a window to the perils and intricacies of air operations in the Himalayan region as well as the stubborn confidence of the IAF men in their ability to handle any situation with whatever is at hand.
