Be a ‘lion’ in air & not a ‘Lamb’, Arjan Singh told a young pilot!



Bengaluru: Air Vice Marshal Ajit Lamba (Retd), the veteran Indian Air Force (IAF) pilot -- revered as a legend and mentor to many current-day aviators -- says late Arjan Singh Marshal of IAF was the kind of a person who charmed all those who came across him.
In an interview to Mathrubhumi on Monday, the 81-year-old ace pilot said the MAF was very fond of him as well.
“I tend to think that the MAF was very fond of me. But I am sure that there are many others, both senior and junior to me in the Service who may be carrying similar expressions. This itself speaks volumes for the late Arjan Singh. He was the kind of person who charmed all those who came across him,” says AVM Lamba (Retd).
Recalling his first encounter with the departed soul, AVM Lamba (Retd) says the duo met when the MAF visited their No 7 Squadron as the then Chief of Air Staff during the 1965 Indo-Pak War.
