Air Force Day is celebrated with enthusiasm on September 7 to pay tribute to the unforgettable role of the Pakistan Air Force in the 1965 war. The brave falcons repulsed the enemy’s attack and maintained the pride and glory of the beloved homeland.
When India imposed aggression on Pakistan in 1965, the Pakistani Shaheens destroyed the arrogance of the enemy. The plane crashed within 30 seconds.
MM Alam, who marked a new chapter in the world’s military history in the 1965 war, made the entire nation proud with his courageous abilities. Pakistan Air Force Sputnik was awarded titles such as Falcon and Little Dragon for his exceptional combat aerial skills.
MM Alam made it clear in his life that Pakistan’s air capability dominates India. MM Alam, who made the impossible possible with his F-86 fighter jet, was awarded the country’s third highest military award, the Star of Courage.
This is the determination that our falcons repeat on Air Force Day. The Pakistani nation will hold ceremonies today on government buildings to pay tribute to their fallen falcons. Flags will be flown and flowers will be laid at the graves of the martyrs.
Attendance at the grave of Rashid Minhas Shaheed, a young Air Force pilot who received the Haider Medal, and salute him is also part of the celebrations.
