Daring indeed: 8 trapped people rescued

IAF helicopter pilots from Mohanbari airbase in Dibrugarh managed to evacuated eight people who were trapped in strong flood waters. These include three pregnant women and two accompanying doctors, from their stranded boat stuck in Dibong river near Sadiya in Tinsukia district.


According to IAF, the IAF crew navigated to the stranded boat and the pilot lowered the helicopter wheels to barely touch the nearby soft ground by holding on to the collective control, which requires consummate piloting skills.
