Details :

On 26th March 1979, Squadron Leader Narinder Singh was engaged in Ladakh. The dropping zone was located in a narrow valley surrounded by high ranging hills. The operation involved constant manoeuvring of the aircraft every close to the hills. During a critical turn at an altitude of about 13,000 feet, his aircraft developed an engine failure and started losing height and power rapidly. Squadron Leader Narinder Singh skillfully manoeuvred his aircraft and diverted it to advance landing ground at a distance of about 45 kilometers from the dropping zone and effected a safe landing with the help of only one engine. Squadron Leader Narinder Singh not only saved a valuable aircraft but ensured delivery of urgently required rations at the destination.

In this action, Squadron Leader Narinder Singh displayed professional skill, courage, determination and devotion to duty of a very high order.
