60 Years of Indian Naval Aviation (1953 - 2013)

Date of Issue: May 11, 2013

The Department of Posts, India - Maharashtra and Goa Circle issued a Special Cover to commemorate 60 Years (Diamond Jubilee) of Indian Naval Aviation, at a function held at INS Hansa, Goa.

The cover is creatively designed, with timeline showing the type of aircrafts inducted into the Naval Aviation arm over the last 60 years, and the newly commissioned MiG-29k fighter jet.

The first naval air station, INS Garuda, was inaugurated in Cochin on May 11, 1953.
