The Chief of Staff of the US Air Force, General David L Goldfein, flew India's indigenous light combat aircraft 'Tejas' at the air force station in Jodhpur on Saturday, 3 February.

Goldfein, who is currently on a tour of India, was accompanied by Air Vice Marshal AP Singh as co-pilot during the sortie, defence officials said.

Goldfein also interacted with the airmen and pilots at the station.

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.

Earlier, General Goldfein had stressed on the "strong relationship" between the two air forces.

LCA Tejas was indigenously built by Hindustan Aeronautics Ltd (HAL) and its first squadron of Tejas was inducted into the IAF in July 2016.
