Gnat F.1 IE1059 at Palam; Warbirds of India

The first Gnat received by the IAF (built in the UK) and is mounted on a pylon aiming for the sky, while in the distance the IAF war memorial stands as a silent tribute to those who did not come back. The plaque in the foreground read "THEIR SELVES THEY GAVE IN THE MOST NOBLE CAUSE BUT ETCHED DEEP IN OUR HEARTS THEIR NAMES LIVE ON FOREVER".
