Air Force Day is being celebrated with national enthusiasm all over the country today

ISLAMABAD: Air Force Day is being observed across the country today (Monday) with national fervor, in memory of the veterans who defended the country’s airspace against Indian aggression in the 1965 war.
On the occasion of Air Force Day, a ceremony was held at the mausoleum of pilot officer Rashid Minhas Shaheed Nishan Haider in Karachi. Flowers were laid on his grave and Fateha was offered. A well-armed contingent of the Pakistan Air Force saluted. Air Officer Commanding Southern Air Command Abbas Ghman was the chief guest at the event. He visited the shrine of Rashid Minhas Shaheed, laid flowers and offered Fateha. Celebrations will be held across the country in this regard while programs related to September will be held at all the airports of the country in which all the forces and other agencies will participate.
The Pakistan Air Force is one of the top ten air forces in the world. In the 1965 war, brave Pakistani pilots, despite their limited resources, not only thwarted India’s air aggression but also humiliated India with their extraordinary fighting skills and bravery. Pakistan Air Force expert Muhammad Mahmood Alam, popularly known as Jawaim M Alam, shot down five Indian Air Force fighter jets in less than a minute, a record to date.
