From Mumbai to Delhi to Guwahati to Leh, the defence force’s helicopters are flying over various places to give the aerial salutes.

Indian Air Force (IAF) is performing a nationwide activity today, on May 3, to express their gratitude towards all the corona heroes fighting in the frontline in this war against COVID-19.
