Obituary

Wing Commmander (Retd) V K Neb, VrC and Bar, Hero of the 1965 and 71 war passed away in New Delhi on September 11, 2002.

Wg Co Neb is the only Indian officially recognised as having downed two Sabres in air combat. He was a young and an inexperienced Flying Officer in the 1965 War. flying for No.27 Sqn in Hunters, Neb was flying a dusk patrol with Flt Lt D N Rathore on 6 Sept 65, when an emergency call that the Halwara Airfield was under attack made them rush to base. about the same time, Two Sabres, were exiting out of the raid flown by Flt Lt Yunus Hussain and Flt Lt Cecil Choudary. As the Hunters jumped the Sabres, Neb latched onto Yunus Hussain's Hunter and destroyed it earning his first Sabre Kill. He was awarded the Vir Chakra at the end of the war.

Neb had to wait another Six Years till he could notch up another claim. Serving in the Eastern Sector with No.17 Sqn again flying Hunters, He was flying in a day attack on Dacca when his flight was intercepted by Sabres. in the ensuing fight, Neb bought down another Sabre. This bought a Bar to the Vir Chakra for Neb, one of the only five officers in the IAF to have earned the Vir Chakra twice.

VIP squadron to buy new choppers

17 September 2002: Three top Western helicopter companies and Russia's Kazan Helicopter Production Association have bid to supply eight choppers for the VIP Communications Squadron of Indian Air Force. Comm Squadron is retiring its Mi-8 fleet used for carrying VIPs and has floated a tender for eight eight-seater helicopters. America's Bell Helicopters has offered the 13-15-seater Bell 412, Augusta Westland the 30-seater EH 101, Eurocopter the 24-seater, AS 332 Super Puma, and Kazan Mi-17. The EH 101 has three engines while the rest have two.

All the manufacturers have urged the air force to remove the extra seats and increase the comfort level in these helicopters. Officials say that paper evaluation is complete and trials will commence in the country. Union Defence Minister George Fernandes who is visiting Italy has an invitation to tour Augusta's production facility in Italy.
