Flt Lt Jagan Nath Vijayaraghavan, KC


On 14 May 1962, Flt Lt Jagan Nath went up for an instructional sortie with his pupil. The aircraft failed to recover from a spin inspite of best efforts. His pupil Plt Offr Evans was able to bale out only in the second attempt. By this time it was too late for Flt Lt Vijayaraghavan to escape. He lost his life in the best traditions of service by keeping the safety of his pupil before his own.
