Pakistan’s JF-17 Leaves Audience Awe-Struck on Qatar’s National Day

Qatar’s National Day falls on 18th December every year and it was celebrated with great zeal and fervor on Wednesday at Corniche Road in Doha amid light drizzle and grey skies. The day is observed as a holiday to mark the unification of Qatar in 1878 under Sheikh Jassim bin Mohammed Al Thani’s leadership.

It was a Qatari show of power as the armed forces did a march while helicopters and fighter jets impressed with flypasts to commemorate the historic day.

  • Alhamdulillah. We must continue developing hi Tech weaponry for all our forces. May Allah Kareem bless Pakistan with honest and dedicated people especially politicians and bureaucracy to leap forward as one of the strongest nation, character, and behavior-wise, economically and militarily.

    • They were doing aerobatics within the cockpit so they couldn’t tell you that. WTF are ppl on JF-17 is at most a 3.5 gen fighter. Are the jf17 pilots stunt man? Even when they preformed in Islamabad in September this year i was not AWSTRUCT by them compared to the F-16. Even the PAF love F-16 why cant we ppl just accept the facts?

  • Let us get ourselves rid of this fool’s paradise. If the aircraft was so capable, it would have been used in FATA operations, Feb skirmishes between Pak and India. It wasn’t. That’s because it is good only for airshows and all but not actual combat. We need to stop fooling ourselves and build a real deterrence.
