Bhadauria said, "No plans for importing a fifth-generation jet. The Advanced Medium Combat Aircraft (AMCA) project is being given go ahead. We have given full support to it. The programme is taking off."
The Apache helicopters, the world’s most lethal multi-role combat chopper, had reached India at IAF Hindon Airbase in Ghaziabad on July 27, 2019 and after a series of trials, they were sent to Pathankot airbase.
In a statement issued, the IAF said the process of recovering mortal remains of those killed in the crash was still underway. Poor weather conditions in the region were hampering operations thereby affecting the pace of recovery.
