Air Force Day being observed today with national zeal
ISLAMABAD (92 News) - Air Force Day is being observed today with national zeal to commemorate the dexterity and valor of the defenders of air space of the country against Indian aggression in September 1965 war.
In the 1965 war, the valiant Pakistani pilots despite limited resources not only annihilated Indian air aggression but also inflicted humiliating defeat on India through unprecedented skill in the warfare and insurmountable courage.
The PAF ace Muhammad Mahmood Alam, commonly known as M.M.Alam, shot down five Indian Air Force Hawker Hunter Mk. 56 fighters in less than a minute.
The world is witness to the PAF action when it downed two Indian jets and arrested one of the pilots Abhinandan on February 27. The defenders of the border – F-7, Miarj, F-16 and JF Thunder-17 – are a symbol of fear for the enemy.
Pakistan Air Force martyrs are the heroes of the nation and the martyrdom of Rashid Minhas is a matter of pride for Pakistan.
