10 Forward Base Support Unit
Date Raised : 1975-04-01 Disbanded : 1980-04-29 Location : Bhaisana (Bhatinda)
Air Force Station Bathinda, as it was known then, began its life as 10 FBSU in 1975 as a lodger unit of 12 Wing AF. As early as 1975, trials by fighter aircraft of 108 Squadron were carried out to ascertain the fitness of the airfield for operations. But it took another four years for this transitory base, with a single watch ATC and first line servicing facilities to become a permanent base for fighter operations. Having undergone trials by units from the Air Force and Army, AF Station Bhisiana established itself to be capable of undertaking all AF Tasks. The station grew in strategic importance and was elevated to status Wing on 18 Feb 80.
