IAF record Dad, daughter fly fighter planes in formation M AYA N K SI N G H @ New Delhi The Indian Air Force has just broken new ground with a father and his daughter flying in formation on a combat proficiency mission. Air Commodore Sanjay Sharma and Flying Officer Ananya Sharma created the record on May 30, when they flew in the same formation of Hawk-132s at the Air Force Station in Bidar, where Ananya is undergoing training. IAF spokesperson Wing Commander Ashish Moghe said, “There has not been any previous instance in the IAF where a father and his daughter were part of the same fighter formation for a mis- Chief Minister YS Jagan Mohan Reddy receives a bouquet from a student after the distribution of Jagananna Vidya Kanuka kits in Adoni on Tuesday | Express Flying Officer Ananya Sharma (L) and Air Commodore Sanjay Sharma | IAF sion.” Since a very early age, Ananya wanted to be a fighter pilot. But, at that time the stream was not open for women. Whenever she would bug her dad about it, he would reassure, “Don’t worry you will be one.” “Ananya after getting commissioned as fighter pilot came and saluted me. It made me really proud,” beamed Air Commodore Sharma. “It was the biggest day of my life when I flew with Ananya,” he added in a video put out by the IAF. Air Commodore Sharma was commissioned in the fighter stream in 1989. He has had an extensive experience of fighter operations, having commanded a MiG-21 squadron as well as a frontline fighter station. When the first women fighter pilots of the IAF entered service in 2016, Ananya saw her dream was now achievable. Having completed her B Tech in Electronics and Communication, she was selected for training. She was commissioned as a fighter pilot in December 2021. Her mother Sonal Sharma said, “I am extremely happy and proud. The feelings I experienced when both Sanjay and Ananya had got airborne in the same formation cannot be expressed in words. It was a feeling way beyond any happiness I have experienced till now.” ing Index for NFSA-2022’ during the conference of food ministers of States/UTs held in New Delhi on Tuesday . Speaking to TNIE, State Civil Supplies Minister Karumuri Nageswara Rao expressed happiness and said, “Chief Minister YS Jagan Mohan Reddy has laid more focus on the common man, as evident from the effective implementation of the Public Distribution System in the State. During the pandemic, the government ensured that food reached the people in time so that they do not suffer.” On being pointed out that the CM in his recent memorandum to Prime Minister Narendra Modi sought amendments to the NFSA, the minister maintained that any proposal was only meant for improving the effectiveness of the Act and bringing more benefits to the people. The current version of the Index aims to measure the effectiveness of NFSA implementation through operations and initiatives under the Targeted Public Distribution System P5 (TPDS).
