    He is was the first ace pilot in S.Asia and the only pilot in the world who became an ace after the WW-II in a single sortie.
    He should have made to the top spot but he was a maverick and wasn't keen on following dictates.... top brass diplomacy.

    He was also an acquintance to General Chuck Yegar. I spoke to General Yegar once, he was impressed by PAF pilots in 1965...chuck was in Pakistan at that time and counted the tails of shot down Indian jets and kept records of it.

    It wasn't a fighter jet, it was a beechcraft...IAF did raid PAF bases, Chuck's beechcraft was severely damaged.

    I don't know why but this reminds me of the North Koreans who keep showcasing the captured American spy ship to tourists.

    Little dot was MM-Alam's callsign/nickname which was never assigned to any other pilot in PAF after him. Most top gradues from CCS PAF Base Mushaf adopt their unique nicknames ie SideWinder,Talon,Claw,Dagger etc

    Iraq only has two boats that can even make it to Pakistan. I hardly call that a fair trade.

    You must be talking about Taliban... that isn't Pakistan. They are still kicking your ass. How hard is it to shoot down drones and helicopters? The US can't do shit since it is violation of your airspace. Yes, you have the right to shoot them down if you don't give consent. You are happy letting the US walk all over your sovereignty. Even France denied the US overflight during Reagan's bombing of Libya. They don't mess with our airspace, you just have to tell them no.

    Without the US aid to include weapons there was no hope in hell that the Soviets could be defeated.

    No one has defeated the US in Afghanistan. If anyone has defeated the US, it is the US public opinion, which has found that US lives should not be wasted in contesting the rabble and the so called 10,000 men can hardly be taken to be the ones who did it.
