With the successful landing of Super Hercules, the IAF is now in a better position to meet the requirement of the Indian Army and evacuating stranded civilian passengers from Srinagar, Leh and Kargil in particular, who are heavily dependent on the air bridge for sustenance and connectivity during winter months due to sudden snowfall and subsequent blocking of highway, the spokesman added.
