Indian Airforce to upgrade all ALGs in North East by 2017

Shillong: Call it a preparation bid on the part of the Indian Airforce to tackle reported Chinese Army intrusion or simply a show of strength, the Eastern Air command is all set to upgrade and inaugurate all the Advance Landing Ground, (ALGs) under its command within the year 2017.

With reports of growing border skirmish between the Indian troops and the Chinese People’s Liberation Army along the Indo-China border, the Indian Airforce seems to be on its toes to ensure that when war comes, they’ll be ready.

This statement came only a day after the successful landing of the largest military transport aircraft C-17 Globemaster at Mechuka in Arunachal Pradesh close to the India-China border.

“Within one year five ALG’s have been inaugurated and are fully functional and within 2017 the remaining ALG’s in the region will be inaugurated and made fully functional,” Group Captain EAC also PRO Defence, Amit Mahajan said on Friday.
