One of the most proven strategic heavylifters of the Indian Airforce - The Gajraj ( King Elephant ) makes corrections to line up with the centerline. The Ilyushin IL-76s were first delivered to the IAF in December 1983. The type has been solely responsible for heavy airlift capabilities until recently, where the role is now dominated by the C-17 Globemaster. The fleet is set to undergo modernization which should extend the service life by another decade or two. 'IL' is the moniker for people who fly, and maintain her.
