Pigeons pose threat to fighter jets at IAF’s future Rafale base


The Indian Air Force (IAF) is worried about the safety and security of its combat aircraft from the pigeons that are being bred around its frontline airbase here, which will be the home base for the Rafale combat aircraft.

“In recent times, there are some locals who are breeding pigeons in their houses. These are in close vicinity to the IAF airfield. These birds are posing a threat to our fighter jets,” said IAF sources.

A complaint has been registered by the IAF officials with the local administration as these pigeons have grown up in the vicinity of the air base.

During the recent incident involving a Jaguar aircraft, it seemed that they didn’t fear the loud sound or the aircraft as  one of them crashed straight into the engine of the plane.  Read More
