41 Years Ago: Animated Reconstruction Of IAF’s Most Historic Dogfight
BY AND COURTESY ANURAG RANA
This is a beautiful 3D animated reconstruction of one of the Indian Air Force’s most unforgettable dogfights — in which Flying Officer Nirmal Jit Singh Sekhon valiantly defended the Srinagar air force base with a Folland Gnat against marauding Pakistani F-86 Sabres on December 14, 1971, exactly 41 years ago. A fitting tribute. Big kudos to Anurag for this, and here’s hoping there’s more soon.
