Air Force Day: Nation Salutes Air Defenders For Excellence & Valor

7th September is observed as annual Pakistan Air Force Day to celebrate the efforts of PAF in defending the country in the 1965 Indo-Pak war.

One of the most notable incidences of the war was MM Alam’s record as he shot down five Indian warplanes in less than a minute on 7th September in response to India’s raid on Lahore. For his valor, the Air Force pilot was awarded the Sitara-e-Jurat. In his F-86 Sabre, MM Alam downed a total of 9 Hawker Hunters including 2 probable kills.

The day is celebrated each year with great zeal and fervor across the country. #PakistanAirForceDay, #MujahideeneAflakKoSalam, and #AirForceDay are all top trends on Twitter as the nation pays tribute to the martyrs of Air Force and national heroes who left no stone unturned to defend their motherland.
