To counter China, India strengthens Air Force supply system in Arunachal Pradesh

It was a day that would go down in the history of aviation for the Indian Air Force. A Boeing C-17 Globemaster III successfully landed and took off from one of the highest landing strips in India, located in Mechuka in Arunachal Pradesh.
Located at an elevation of about 1830 metres above sea level and close to China border, Mechuka was one of the several strategic locations during the 1962 war with China.
The Advance landing Ground at Mechuka in the Yargyap river valley of West Siang district of Arunachal Pradesh had been upgraded recently.
