SQN LDR RAFIQUI OPENS THE SEPTEMBER ACCOUNT
1965


PAF scored its first victory in 1965 on 1st September, when four Indian Vampire fighters which were attacking Pakistani troops in Chamb were shot down by two F-86 Sabers flown by Squadron Leader Sarfraz Rafiqui and Flight Lieutenant Imtiaz Bhatti, two by each pilot. No Vampires were seen again for the remainder of the 1965 war. The Controller on radar during this interception was Flight Lieutenant Farooq Haider from Sakesar.
