THE F-6 JOINS THE PAF
1965


 
The first two F-6s (Mig-19s made in China) are arriving at Sargodha Air Base. The pilots flew over the Karakorams directly from the Chinese airfield at Hotian. The F-6 carried VHF radios, Soviet style instruments and many pieces of equipment that were strange to the PAF pilots and technical hands. The Pakistani markings were not yet painted and the pilots wore leather helmets and throat mikes. Many officers and men of Sargodha Air Base gathered near the runway to watch the landings.
