India flies indigenous LCA 'Tejas'

Achievement India demonstrated the flight of its indigenous Light Combat Aircraft (LCA), which was named 'Tejas' by Prime Minister Atal Bihari Vajpayee in Bangalore. Conceived in 1983, the development of LCA had been hit by delays due to various reasons including sanctions by the United States post Pokhran-blasts before it made its maiden flight on January 4, 2001.
