These photographs were taken on July 13 by Portuguese photographers Leandro Rocha (1 and 3) and Fabio Rocha (2) just before the Indian Air Force contingent to the Red Flag air exercise in the US landed at Lajes Terceira airport in Portugal. The contingent includes eight Sukhoi-30MKIs, an Il-76 and two Il-78M mid-air refuellers. The IAF is expected to release more photos in the coming days, so you can expect more glorious photos of our warriors in the air right here.
