I have flown in just about everything, with all kinds of pilots in all parts of the world -- British, French, Pakistani, Iranian, Japanese, Chinese -- and there wasn't a dime's worth of difference between any of them except for one unchanging, certain fact: the best, most skillful pilot has the most experience.

Today on 10th April, in 1959, PAF drew the first blood over sub-continent when an IAF Canberra (IP-988) from 106 Sqn was shot down over Rawalpindi by Flt Lt Yunis from No 15 'Cobra' Squadron. Today, this unit is equipped with the latest J-10CE fighter, ready to repeat the history.
