|Details :|| |
On 27th February 1969, Wing Commander Kshirode Krishna Sen was flying a jet, giving preĆĀsolo instruction to a trainee pilot under conversion. While on the final approach, about ten kilometers away from the airfield, the aircraft engine suddenly flamed out. He immediately took control of the rapidly sinking aircraft and ordered the trainee pilot to eject. The ejection process jeopardised his own safety because it blackened the periscope and totally cut out his front view. In spite of this, with determination and courage he kept direction and control of the aircraft and eventually crash-landed it at the airfield. Thus, he not only saved the lives of many civilians on the ground but also made it possible for the administration to investigate the cause of the engine failure and take remedial action.
Throughout, Wine Commander Kshirode Krishna Sen displayed courage and devotion to duty.
