The upgraded Advanced Landing Ground (ALG) at Pasighat in Arunachal Pradesh has been inaugurated by Kiren Rijiju, MoS for Home Affairs. A flypast by a formation of three Sukhoi-30 MKI Air Dominance Fighter aircraft, that took off from one of the forward EAC airbases was a highlight of the event. This was followed by a Su-30MKI also landing at the ALG. The touchdown by a frontline fighter jet of the IAF at the ALG is a historic first in the predominantly hilly state of Arunachal Pradesh, which has several ALGs at varying altitudes. The new runway surface and other infrastructure built are similar to the other upgraded ALGs that have been inaugurated in recent months.
