Celebrates 63rd anniversary...:
SLAF stands tall
The Sri Lanka Air Force celebrates its 63rd
anniversary today. A new chief took over the command last Friday.
Five years ago, on the night of February 20, just ten days before
they were to traditionally celebrate their fifty eighth Air Force
Day and the Sri Lankan military was on the edge of winning the war
against terrorism when an LTTE flying bomb hit Colombo in a kamikaze
style suicide air attack.
