1948 made Dakota aircraft to arrive in India soon

Rajya Sabha MP Rajeev Chandrasekhar’s offer to the Union Government to hand over the 1948 made Douglas DC3 ‘Dakota’ Aircraft to the Indian Air Force (IAF) that will arrive in India shortly, is now getting all the mandatory clearances.
Speaking to IANS, the businessman-turned-lawmaker said the aircraft was currently in London.
“Since it is a long haul flight and has to fly over 11 countries, one has to get sanction from all these countries, for which we have applied for. I expect the aircraft to arrive in the country in the coming months and wish to officially hand it over on Vijay Diwas,” Chandrasekhar said.
