March 09, 2015: On February, right in the middle of Aero India 2015, the U.S. Army teamed up with the Indian Army's 2nd Parachute Regiment (Special Forces) for a parachute demonstration from a C-17 Globemaster III. The two armies have jumped together befoer during Yudh Abhyas exercises, but for the first time, National Security Guard paratroopers were part of the jump. The Indian commandos teamed up with paratroopers from the U.S. Army Bravo Company, 1st Battalion, 1st Special Forces Group for detailed joint briefings and the jump from a Pacific Air Forces C-17 Globemaster III over Yelahanka on a warm day.

The jump, while primarily for demonstration purposes at the show, was also a gesture of jointmanship between the special forces just weeks after U.S. President Barack Obama and Indian PM Narendra Modi renewed the strategic partnership and defence relationship between the two countries, an agreement that includes expanding the nature of joint military exercises and exchanges. The Indian Army and IAF are expected to participate in exercises in the U.S. this year.
