Details :

Wing Commander Devender Singh Jain was on posted strength of a Jaguar Squadron.

During Squadron detachment at Air Force Station Jodhpur on 17 February 1993, while at take off point, he saw a MiG-21 BIS aircraft crash just outside the perimeter fence; but did not see the pilot eject. He at once transmitted the details to the air traffic control on the radio. He then switched off his aircraft, jumped out and rushed to the crash site after negotiating the double barbed wire airfield fencing and the brimming sewerage drain outside it. He was the first Air Force personnel to reach the crash site. Despite an imminent fire hazard due to a large amount of fuel that had spilled around the crashed aircraft, near its smouldering tail portion, Squadron Leader Jain, along with a civilian, managed to extricate the incapacitated pilot from under the wreckage and provided initial first-aid. He then selected and cleared a site for the rescue helicopter to land, marshalled the crew to a safe landing, and then assisted in putting the injured pilot into the helicopter.

Wing Commander Devender Singh Jain showed outstanding presence of mind, situational awareness and firm resolve in rescuing a fellow officer from crashed aircraft.
