“A little nostalgic on JRD’s 116th birth anniversary,” wrote Ratan Tata, 82, on Instagram this morning. “Mr. JRD Tata and I shared a deep passion and interest in aviation.”

Mr Tata, Chairman Emeritus of Tata Sons, shared two throwback pictures and added: “These photos bring back pleasant memories of visits that I arranged for Jeh to visit manufacturing facilities for the B1B bomber and the space shuttle.

“We had been privileged to be invited to tour the manufacturing amenities, a possibility not many have. It was value it to see the spark in his eyes.”
