The Fly-Out is a ceremony usually organized by the Nigerian Air Force for exiting Chiefs after a successful service to the Nation.
The ceremony kicked off by 9:15 am at the Nigerian Air Force base, Bill Clinton Drive Abuja.
The event will witness the presence of the new Chief of Air Staff(CAS), Air Vice Marshall Isiaka Amao, the Chief of Defence Staff(CDS), Major-General Iraboh.
