Awards and Decorations

Number of Awards: 1
Vayu Sena Medal
Sqn LdrKamal Kant Dwivedi14105 F(P)Award Date Announced 26 Jan 1989
Details :

Squadron leader Kamal Kant Dwivedi (14105) Flying (Pilot) has been on the posted strength of a fighter Squadron since 16 Jun 86. He is a fully operational pilot, a supervisor and the Squadron Pilot Attack Instructor with 120 hrs on Vikram aircraft and 1600 hrs of total service flying.

On 22 Jul 87 on completion of a successful practice interception sortie while turning on to base leg for a landing a screw which was flying loose inside the fuselage got lodged in the control system of his aircraft causing severe restriction in the fore and aft movement of the control column. As against maximum upward deflection of 28º of the tail plane and 18-20º required for a normal round off and touchdown, he had only 6º available to him. Fully aware of and yet totally unruffled by this very serious handicap, he very skillfully controlled the aircraft on the finals by intelligent use of power and airbrakes and executed a safe landing there by averting a major catastrophe not only for himself and his aircraft but also for civilians and their property around the airfield.

For the tremendous calmness and composure shown under severe stress, the President is pleased to award Vayu Sena Medal to Squadron Leader Kamal Kant Dwivedi.
