Operation Capability Display
With the Navy Day celebrations around the corner, on 27th November 2011 the city-based Southern Naval Command on Sunday put up a rare public display of the entire spectrum of naval operations at the waterfront facing Rajendra Maidan and Netaji Subhash Park. Kerala Chief Minister, Oommen Chandy was the chief guest and hundreds of residents turned out for the display. The demonstration began with a fly past by various Navy aircraft. Helicopter demonstrations included the Sea King helicopter flying past the crowd with an Ambassador car slung on it showing its lift capacity. A demonstration of water sports including water-skiing and jet-skiing followed. Enthralling the viewers, the Indian Navy Sky Diving team swooped down from a Sea King helicopter.
