16 IAF planes land on Lucknow-Agra Expressway in rare exercise

In a rare drill, at least 16 IAF aircraft are landing on the Lucknow-Agra Expressway today.

The goal is to test whether public roads can serve as runways in cases of emergency, when key airfields aren't available.

The first experiment goes back to 2015, when a Mirage 2000 landed on the Yamuna Expressway.

The IAF has reportedly cleared 12 national highways for the purpose.
