He was Air Officer Commanding, Air Force Station Pune from Apr 93 to May 95. During the devastating earthquake at Latur in 1993 he effectively co-ordinated a large number of relief measures. The successful conduct of training of 100 personnel of Royal Malaysian Air Force on MiG­29 aircraft was another achievement during his command of the station which was over and above the normal allotted task of the Station.

Air Cmde Sen was posted as Air­1, HQ South Western Air Command in May 95. He was entrusted with responsibility for planning and conduct of a Fire Power Demonstration (FPD) at Pokhran in Nov 95. This was the largest FPD conducted since 1989 and was witnessed by the RRM, the three Service Chiefs, and a large number of MPs. By all standards, it was a spectacular show. The Air Officer also displayed high level of professional skills during planning and conduct of the Air Force level exercise in which many new concepts were tried out successfully.

Air Commodore Amlendra Nath Sen has thus rendered distinguished service of an exceptional order.
