She flew in a MiG-21 Bison aircraft from Ambala Air Force Station on Friday.
She is second only to Flying Officer Avani Chaturvedi who created history on February 21 by being the first ever woman fighter pilot to fly solo.
It was in October 2015 that the government took the decision to open the fighter stream for women. Meanwhile, combat roles in the army and the navy are still off-limits for women, due to a combination of operational concerns and logistical constraints.
It was only in 1992 that the armed forces began recruiting women to streams, other than the medical stream.
Only selected countries, such as Britain, the United States, Israel, and Pakistan have allowed women in the role of fighter pilots. (ANI)
