Indo-Oman exercise Eastern Bridge-II (2011) second of the series was conducted at Air Force Station Jamnagar from 17 Oct - 21 Oct 11. The previous edition of this exercise was held between the two Air Forces at Thumrait, Oman in 2009. RAFO participated with 6xJag and approximate 110 personnel in the exercise. It was the first time RAFO Jaguars have participated in a joint exercise in India. IAF participated with local Jaguar and Mig-29 Squadrons at Air Force Station Jamnagar.
The exercise has not only enriched the IAF and RAFO professionally but also culturally. The Omani people and Indians share a similar culture. The exercise provided an opportunity of rich interaction between the personnel of both countries.
