The visit to Goa, is the fourth meeting of the joint working group since the two countries began to hold candid discussions on aircraft carrier technology in 2015. A delegation comprising of seven Indian officials and fourteen US delegates visited in Goa on 29.
“The joint group visited the premier Naval Air Station Hansa and witnessed the flying facilities including a demonstration of the Mig 29K fighter aircraft operations. The delegation was also taken for an on-board India’s sole aircraft carrier INS Vikramaditya on Tuesday,” a naval source said.
