Major to be new Air Chief Marshall !
Is this the biggest promotion in the history of the armed forces? Across service lines, from the Army to the Air Force.It could well be unless there was a General Naik running around somewhere.
Must have had a tough time at NDA when he would have been Cdt Major.
I can already hear people saying "kyoon tau fauj mein teer nahin maar sake to vayu sena main ghus gaye?"
But on a more serious note, if I remember correctly, this was the same chap who flew the helicopter in that cable car rescue incident sometime in the 90s, cause I remember making the same joke then.
