Watch: IAF Emergency Landing Drill On Highway, 2 Ministers On Board


New Delhi:

A C-130J Super Hercules transport aircraft, carrying Defence Minister Rajnath Singh, Roadways Minister Nitin Gadkari and Air Chief Marshal RKS Bhadauria, completed an ’emergency field landing’ – part of a readiness drill by the armed forces – on a national highway in Rajasthan’s Barmer today.

The ‘field landing’ of the C-130J Super Hercules (to be followed by fighter aircraft like Jaguars and Sukhoi Su-30 MKIs landing and taking off), is to test the quality of road infrastructure as emergency airstrips in the event of rescue or times when airbases – the enemy’s first targets in a war – may not be available and highways have to be used as landing strips.

A video of the landing shows the aircraft safely touching down on the road, as a small crowd of people, which included Chief of Defence Staff General Bipin Rawat, look on from a safe distance.

Shortly after the Super Hercules touched down, a Sukhoi fighter jet also landed.

A total of 12 highways in different states, including the Agra-Lucknow expressway, have been identified as potential emergency landing airstrips, news agency ANI reported.

The airstrip on a three-kilometre stretch of NH-925A in Barmer is the first on a national highway.

The government has said the ELF will normally be used for smooth flow of vehicular traffic. But, during operations for Indian Air Force, the service road will be used for road traffic. It (the ELF) will be able to handle all types of IAF aircraft, the government added.

In addition, three helipads have been constructed in Kundanpura, Singhania and Bakhasar villages; all three have been built in consultation with the Air Force and Army and will help strengthen armed forces’ security network and operational readiness on the country’s western border.

In 2017 several IAF planes, including a C-130J Super Hercules, and Mirage 2000 and Sukhoi Su-30MKI fighters, performed touch-and-go landings on a stretch of the Agra-Lucknow expressway.

IAF fighter planes – Mirage-2000 and Sukhoi – have twice landed on expressways in Uttar Pradesh.

The first was in 2015 when a Mirage-2000 landed on the Yamuna expressway near Delhi.
