Dubai: The hashtag #HeroesInUniform is trending on twitter India, with accolades pouring in, because of the bravery of Indian Air Force (IAF) pilot Air Commodore Sanjay Chauhan.

When he had a choice to save himself or hundreds others, he didn’t hesitate.

He took off from the Jamnagar Air Force base in Gujarat, India, on a routine training mission yesterday. But at around 10.30am, he went down with his Jaguar fighter aircraft in a barren plot of land in Gujarat’s Kutch district.

The fact that the crash site was barren was not a coincidence.
