Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister, N. Chandrababu Naidu as a gesture for Deepavali, laid foundation stone for the TU-142 Aircraft Museum at Visakhapatnam. TU-142 aircraft has long history as it has served as Naval exploration and anti-submarine warfare(ASW) plane. It has a magnificent record of having worked for the nation about 30 years, as well as participation in the Kargil conflict besides other operations.
Specially for this purpose a platform has been constructed on which the fighter Aircraft is placed. CM Chandrababu Naidu along with the Chief of the ENE went inside it and spent some time there. Most of the construction work is complete. This art piece shall encourage the patriotic feeling among the young people of our country. It will also contribute to the promotion of tourism in the region.
The works will be finished in the few months and President Ram Nath Kovind would inaugurate it in December this year.
