Details :

On 4th January 1968, Flight Lieutenant Gurmit Singh Maan was returning from a combat training sortie in a fighter aircraft when he found his longitudinal control jammed. Repeated attempts failed to clear the restriction either in power or manual control and he was left only with the electrical trimmer. Undaunted, with excellent airmanship, he carried out a perfect landing with his control trimmer alone and thus saved a valuable aircraft. In this action, Flight Lieutenant Gurmit Singh Maan displayed courage and professional skill.
