Wing Commander Mandokollathur Gopalaswamy Ramachandra was commanding a squadron from 18th July 1966 to 16th August 1969. Although there were no firing ranges available at or near his base with proper planning he effectively trained his air and ground crews in the various operational roles.

His crews executed the tasks assigned to them successfully. The average monthly flying and utilization rate of the squadron's aircraft, during his stewardship, had been the maximum with minimum rate of accidents/incidents.

Throughout, Wing Commander Mandokollathur Gopalaswamy Ramachandra displayed courage and devotion to duty.
