By his timely action he not only saved the lives of the occupants of the aircraft but also avoided damage to a costly aircraft.

On the 11th September, 1970, he was detailed to fly from Allahabad to Bangalore. After becoming airborne, when approximately 135 miles south of Begumpet, he experienced loss of propeller control on the starboard engine. The aircraft which was fully loaded began to lose height rapidly. He controlled the aircraft on asymmetric power and reduced the loss of height to the minimum by ejecting the jettisonable load and diverted the aircraft to Cuddappah airfield for an emergency landing. This airfield was inadequate for landing the aircraft, but there was no alternative. During the landing run at Cuddappah, the engine reverse pitch did not function in time. After rolling for about 600 yards, he found that the nose wheel steering had also failed with the resultant loss of directional control. Inspite of these mechanical failures, he remained cool, and skillfully brought the aircraft to a safe halt within the short space available.
