IAF shares video of air-to-air refueling by Su-30MKI fighter jet from IL-78 FRA


The Indian Air Force (IAF) on Saturday shared a video showing glimpses of a refuelling exercise held midair between Su-30MKI fighter aircraft and IL-78 FRA aircraft. The exercise was a part of the ”Garuda” exercise currently being held from Air Force Base Mont-De-Marsan in France from July 1 to July 14.

The exercise is a joint operation held between an IAF contingent and France Air Force. On the refuelling exercise, Group Captain Antil said, “Air-to-Air refuelling is not an easy task. Pilots need to get their speeds right, get in correct formation and synchronise with the refueler.”
