The Indian Air Force has resumed operations at the world's highest airfield in Ladakh, giving new edge to its troops along the China border. The Daulat Beg Oldi airfield at 16,200 feet has been activated for the first time since the India-China war in 1962. This comes a week ahead of foreign minister Pranab Mukherjee's visit to China.
