A press statement here said that the Bangladesh Air Force (BAF) chief visited the technical type training school and a helicopter unit and interacted with all personnel of the station.
Military ties between the IAF and the BAF are vibrant and date back to the India-Pakistan war in 1971 when the IAF had trained the Kilo flight which later transformed into the Bangladesh Air Force, the statement said. The visit of Air Chief Marshal Hannan has further cemented the warm military ties between the two nations, it added.
