NEW DELHI - The Indian Air Force on Monday again asserted that it has credible information and evidence that the Pakistan Air Force lost one F-16 in the dogfight with Wing Commander Abhinandan Varthaman's MiG-21 Bison on February 27, 2019.

Addressing a press conference, Air Vice Marshal RGK Kapoor said that the IAF will not be sharing the all the details of the aerial battle due to the concerns of security and confidentiality but shared some proof of the MiG-21 shooting down the Pakistani F-16 over the skies of Jammu and Kashmir.

The IAF said that it has irrefutable evidence of not only the fact that the F-16 was used by Pakistan Air Force on February 27 but also that IAF MiG-21 Bison shot down the Pakistani jet.

"There is no doubt that two aircraft went down in the aerial engagement on 27 February 2019 one of which was the bison of IAF while the other was F-16 of Pakistan Air Force conclusively identified by its electronic signature and radio transcripts," the IAF said.
