MUMBAI: National Geographic is marking the 70th Republic Day celebrations by paying tribute to the selfless heroes of the Indian Air Force. Amidst the dangers and difficulties of ruthless terrains and conditions, the brave men and women of the IAF have been instrumental in ensuring the safety of the nation and our people. To tell their story, National Geographic and the Indian Air Force have produced an exclusive documentary, Extreme Flight: Indian Air Force that will premiere on 25th January at 9 pm on National Geographic.

‘Extreme Flight: Indian Air Force’ captures the dangers and difficulties the Indian Air Force encounters while operating in the country’s most hostile environment and weather conditions – from Jammu & Kashmir to the North East. National Geographic, a channel that is revered for in-depth storytelling and giving viewers unprecedented access, will give viewers an inside access to the Indian Air Force’s high altitude operations in this documentary.  The exclusive documentary will showcase the latest machines in the Indian Air Force’s arsenal, as well as introduce some of the men and women who put their lives at risk for the duty to the nation. 

IAF Spokesperson said, ‘It takes grit, determination, and unconditional love for the nation to be a part of the Indian Air Force. The physically and emotionally exhausting training processes that every IAF official goes through, is truly inspirational. It is great to see National Geographic showcasing this documentary, the essence of what it takes to conquer aerospace. We have worked closely with the channel to bring out the lesser known stories of our operations in such harsh climatic conditions. I am confident that the documentary will take viewers a step closer to understand the challenges and motivations of our officers.”

Gayatri Yadav, Head-Consumer Strategy and Innovation, Star India, said, ‘’Over the years, Indian Air Force has not only provided aerial security to the nation but has also supported various sections of the armed forces, especially in postings not accessible by road. The highly skilled and dedicated men and women, with their aerospace capabilities have made us proud on many occasions. Reverberations of their heroics, are felt not only in the country but also around the world. National Geographic’s documentary, Extreme Flight: Indian Air Force’ will showcase to the country, the story of these selfless heroes. The documentary will be our salute to these awe-inspiring officers.”

Extreme Flight: Indian Air Force will premiere on National Geographic at 9 pm, on January 25, 2019. The Republic Day special documentary will also be scheduled on the channel on 26th Jan at 12 pm and 8 pm. It will also be available on Hotstar.
