Our search-and-destroy missions in ’65 war: Group Captain Chinoy (Retd)
In the early part of the 1965 war with Pakistan, Dara Phiroze Chinoy, a young Flying Officer with the Indian Air Force found himself suddenly trapped on enemy land. “An anti-aircraft shell had exploded into my engine and the engine flamed out. The aircraft was on fire and there was smoke and flames in the cockpit. I couldn’t see anything,” Chinoy, now 70, told NDTV in his house in Bengaluru.

Hello Capt. Chinoy. Did you attend K. C. College in Bombay in the early 60’s? I do not remember the first name, but I had a friend with the last name of Chinoy who joined the IAF just before the war broke out with China in 1963.
