In a tragic accident a few days ago, two jets of the IAF’s Surya Kiran Aerobatic Team crashed down after they collided with each other in Bengaluru. The incident happened just a couple of days before the Aero India Show.

The crash left two pilots injured and unfortunately, the third one lost his life. 

And today, the Surya Kiran Aerobatic Team displayed their first formation of the show as an incomplete diamond in tribute to the fallen pilot, Sahil Gandhi.


People reacted to this gesture positively.

This tribute by the pilots was a heartwarming gesture to their fallen comrade.
