Purvanchal Expressway LIVE Updates: PM Modi will inaugurate Purvanchal Expressway in Uttar Pradesh.

New Delhi/ Lucknow:

Prime Minister Narendra Modi will ride an Air Force C-130J Super Hercules today for the inauguration of the 340-km long Purvanchal Expressway in Uttar Pradesh.

Prime Minister Modi is expected to land at 1.30 pm after which he will go for a public rally. Around an hour later, he will witness a Mirage 2000 landing on the 3.2 km airstrip and a servicing demo. An AN-32 transport aircraft will land troops on the airstrip. This will be followed by a flypast by three Kiran Mk2s, flanked by 2 Sukhoi 30 jets.

Trial runs of the landing and an air show were in full swing. Videos on social media showed aircraft landing rehearsals on the expressway. A clip of a dry-run on Sunday showed a Mirage 2000, an AN-32 turboprop and a Sukhoi-30 landing on the highway about 100 km from state capital Lucknow.
