Governor VPS Badnore took a sortie in a Su-30MKI fighter aircraft at the Halwara air base in Punjab.

The aircraft was piloted by Group Captain NK Vatsya, the commanding officer of 220 Squadron.

The governor took the 30-minute sortie on Monday.

“Had an amazing and invigorating experience flying a sortie on Sukhoi-30MKI. A twin jet multi-role jet fighter developed by Russia and upgraded by India’s Hindustan Aeronautics Limited (HAL) for the Indian Air Force,” Badnore tweeted.
