Wing Commander Dayashanker Mishra was posted to a Base Repair Depot in January, 1970, and was entrusted with the task of organising the major servicing of certain types of aircraft and helicopters. The Depot was required to shoulder a commitment far in excess of its approved task. He made a realistic appraisal of the whole situation and planned the aircraft production sections on modern lines to meet the increased com mitment. He evolved certain repair and servicing schemes and planned the re­sequencing of various technical activities and processes so as to cut down turn-round time. This greatly accelerated the aircraft production programme. He also launched a drive for utilisation of indigenous items and the reclamation of parts in short supply. As a result, the Depot not only exceeded its production task but has also been placed on a more sound footing.
