JODHPUR: The Chief of Staff of the US Air Force, General David L Goldfein, today flew India's indigenous light combat aircraft 'Tejas' at the air force station here. Goldfein, who arrived here yesterday, was accompanied by Air Vice Marshal AP Singh as co-pilot during the sortie, defence officials said. "General David L Goldfein, Chief of Staff of the US Air Force, is on an official visit to India. He flew a sortie in '#MadeinIndia' LCA Tejas aircraft at AF Stn Jodhpur today," the IAF said on Twitter. Goldfein yesterday interacted with the airmen and pilots at the station. "His visit was a gesture of mutual cooperation between the Indian and the US air forces, both of which are considered the best in the world," the official said. Earlier, General Goldfein had stressed on the "strong relationship" between the two air forces. "We look forward to deepening the relationship between our two air forces," he said in his posts on Twitter and Facebook. The first squadron of Tejas was inducted into the IAF in July 2016.

Chief,

Never expected this breathless bit from the hard-headed, both-feet-firmly-on-the-ground @Nilgiri.

Don't get me wrong; I'm saying this with great respect.

What is this going to prove?

Just posting a spot of news :)

Nothing will be proven till we sort out our decision-maker system. Capable aircraft is there, but it needs capable trust and foresight at the appropriate echelons.
