REPUBLIKA.CO.ID, JAKARTA -- The Indonesian Military will celebrate the 69th anniversary of the Air Force in Halim Perdanakusuma Air Base, Jakarta, next Thursday by organizing several aerobatic performances.

"Special Forces will perform skydives for capturing the air base and freeing hostages. The simulation will be performed by Den Bravo Elite Team of Indonesian Air Force Special Command," Chief of the Information Office of Indonesian Air Force First Marshal Hadi Tjahjanto said here on Tuesday (7/4).

According to Hadi, aircraft such as CN-295, F-16 Fighting Falcon, T-50i Golden Eagle, and several KT-1B of Jupiter Aerobatic Team will perform on the occasion.

Indonesian Air Force Chief of Staff Marshal Agus Supriatna noted that Jupiter Aerobatic Team (JAT) will perform different acrobatic motions in the event.

Despite the JAT experiencing a crash in Langkawi, Malaysia, on Sunday (March 5), Indonesian Air Force will deploy the team to hold an aerobatic show above Jakarta.

"I think their exercise today ran smoothly. We will allow them to perform to improve their confidence," Agus added.

The Chief of Staff stated his institution has been monitoring the psychological condition of each member of the JAT.

"We must monitor their psychological condition. It is important that they have to be deployed to motivate them. If their psychological condition improves, they will give their best performance," Agus observed.

The Chief of Staff pointed out he will be responsible for the investigation of the JAT crash at Langkawi in Malaysia.

The JAT has been using KT-1B Wong Bee turbo propeller as their aircraft. Besides the JAT, Indonesian Air Force will hold an aerobatic performance by T-50i Golden Eagle jet fighters.

Indonesian Air Force has been conducting aerobatic exercises and flybys at Halim Perdanakusuma Airbase in Jakarta since Sunday.
