    Great thread, great photos!

    One thing though I'm pretty sure they retired all the Pucara ssome years back.

    I have reference to their use of the HAL Chetak any pixs? I haven't found any info on them no s/n's or pixs yet. Some of the listed aircraft now long out of use. A complete list can be found on my site www.worldairforces.com Also found on Sri Lanka website they used Slingsby Kirby Cadet and Type 21 Sedburgh training gliders and a AF built ultralight Jayasinghe.
