Towards the end of our course, a trip to Indian Air Force Museum, New Delhi was taken by us where the students of Ryan International School Mayur Vihar and Noida together enjoyed the day.
The idea behind such an activity is not just giving our children a unique and enriching experience but also making them aware about the importance of the Air Force in the Indian Army.
The museum consists of a war memorial, three galleries, an aircraft hangar and an aircraft dispersal in the open. At the entrance was a GNAT fighter and a laser-guided missile to welcome visitors.
In Gallery I, many beautiful models, a globe with the Indian Flag and a golden capsule were kept. It consisted of photographs of World War II. Pictures of soldiers and leaders adorned the walls of the museum. The weapons on the board made history more lively. There was a big hall which had big aircrafts and planes. They were real and truly magnificent. Children were so excited looking at those planes in real. It looked like we were travelling through the 1970s, when Indo-Pak war was going on.
Gallery II and III consisted of paintings and things that had been used by Indian pilots to locate the enemy. Many instruments like ground cameras and air cameras were preserved.
Here are few glimpses of children visiting IAF Museum, Palam with us.
This was a small and successful effort on our behalf to depict a phase of our proud Indian Air Force.
The visit was followed by the students sending in articles, reports, pictures etc. to express their experiences about the trip.
