New Delhi, Jan 21 (IBNS): In view of the flypast at heights varying from 60 to 500 metres being displayed on the Republic Day and the associated flight safety concerns posed by birds, the Indian Air Force (IAF) has appealed to all citizens of Delhi and its neighbourhood to keep their areas clean and avoid throwing eatables, garbage, dead animals or carcasses in the open in all the days leading up to Jan 26.
"Responsible citizens are also requested to alert the nearest Air Force Unit or Police Station and report instances of carcasses found in the open. The vulnerable areas that come in the route include Palam, Najafgarh drains, Tihar Jail, War Cemetery and areas adjoining Rashtrapati Bhavan," the IAF statement said.
 
Birds pose a serious threat to aircraft flying at low levels. 
 
Eatables thrown out in the open attract birds, to ensure a safe fly past, the Indian Air Force requested the citizens of Delhi, and its neighbourhood not to throw eatables and garbage in the open. 
 
"Also, if they find any carcass out in the open they are requested to report to the nearest Air Force Unit / police station to arrange for its disposal," the statement said.
