Jaguars in US exploits

New Delhi, Aug. 17: Indian Air Force bombers returned to base today after war games hosted by America in Alaska. Air force sources said the bombers had penetrated US air defence twice.

The IAF had deployed six Jaguar deep-penetration strike aircraft to Alaska for the fortnight-long Exercise Cooperative Cope Thunder 04-01 that ended on July 30. The IAF had also sent two IL-76 heavy duty transporters, its two new IL-78 refuellers and more than 200 personnel.

The sources said the Jaguars had penetrated defensive cover and scored “direct hits” on ground targets in ranges in Alaska.
