The Chief of US Air Force, General David L Goldfein, flew a sortie in the indigenous Light Combat Aircraft Tejas at the Indian Air Force station in Jodhpur.

Goldfein arrived in India on Thursday accompanied by US Pacific Air Forces Commander General Terrence O'Shaughnessy, on an official visit to boost defence ties between the two nations.

"His visit was a gesture of mutual cooperation between the Indian and the US air forces, both of which are considered the best in the world," the official said.

Indigenously developed by the Aeronautical Development Agency and manufactured by the Hindustan Aeronautics Limited, the single-engine, mutli-role fighter jet is a fourth generation aircraft which can fly at a speed of 1,350 kmph with a payload capacity of 4,000 kg. It inducted into the Indian Air Force in July 2016.

This is the first instance that the Light Combat Aircraft (LCA) was flown by a foreign military chief. In November last year, the Defence Minister of Singapore Ng Eng Hen was flown in a Tejas fighter jet.
