Nasik is a district adjoining Thane and Ahemednagar in Maharastra. 12 km from Nasik, the IAF Maintainance Command has No.11 Base Repair Depot at an airfield called Ojhar , where MiGs are overhauled and Sukhoi fighters are built by HAL which shares this airfield. HAL was earlier manufacturing MiG-21s here.

Nasik is where MiGs go to retire – aircraft at the end of their technical life are refurbished for gate guardian duties and as school aids.
