Additional Notes

Remarks: Deba Prasad Daityari Note added: 2018-08-05
Flt Lt Murthy and Flt Lt Chandan Gupta on this fate full day went for a sortie with Chetak and fell near the runway (Viman Pura) with a thud. Chandan Gupta expired in Command Hosp. without any visible external injury (died due to internal injury) and Murthy saab survived with multi fractured body. The accident still hunts me, as happened in my visible distance.
