Indian Air Force has trolled the Pakistan during 87th Air Force day at Hindon airbase in Ghaziabad. Indian Air Force used same Su-30 MKI Aircraft during Air Force Day parade which was claimed by Pakistan to have ‘shot down’ during an aerial dogfight in February this year.
During the celebration of the 87th foundation day of the Indian Air Force, Russian made Su-30 MKI made the ‘Avenger’ formation at the Hindon Air Base in Ghaziabad. This fighter aircraft was even flied by the same pilot. Pakistan had claimed to have ‘shot down’ the same aircraft with same pilot during an aerial dogfight in February this year.
So Avenger 1 (extreme right aircraft), an IAF Su-30 that Pak insisted was downed a day after Balakot … makes an appearance on Air Force day, apparently flown by the same pilots who were “shot down.'' The IAF provides transparency, what about Pak and #doosrabanda? pic.twitter.com/Qg5MXmBb3I— Vishnu Som (@VishnuNDTV) October 8, 2019
One of the aircraft, named ‘Avenger-1’, was the same jet that Pakistan was claimed to have ‘Shot Down’ during an aerial dogfight in February this year.

Pakistan had claimed that PAF had shot down a Su-30 MKI and a Mig-21 fighter aircrafts of Indian Air Force during an aerial dogfight in February this year while India had rejected all the claims of Pakistan. IAF had said it had shot down an American-made F-16 and firmly denied that one of its Su-30s were destroyed.
3 Mirage-2000s were being piloted by Squadron leader Bhujadey, Group Capt P Raj & Wing Commander Basoya, and the SU 30s were being flown by Wing Commander KP Singh & Squadron leader Parshuram.
Wing Commander Abhinandan Varthaman, who shot down the Pakistan’s F-16 aircraft, made his comeback on Tuesday as he led the formation of Mig-21 Bison fighter jets during a flypast at the air base. He was also awarded the Vir Chakra for his bravery during an aerial dogfight in February this year.
