*Today In History*
13 April, 1948 was an unforgettable day in the history of PAF. Father of the Nation, Quaid-e-Azam Muhammad Ali Jinnah, who had envisioned the then RPAF to be one of the strongest Air Forces of the world, visited RPAF Training School Risalpur on its Passing-out Parade.

On the momentous occasion, Quaid-e-Azam was received by Wing Commander Asghar Khan who later on became the first Commander-in-Chief, PAF ; and led from the front for realisation of Quaid’s vision.

It was on this historic day when the Quaid laid out his enduring Vision for PAF. The great Quaid said, “There is no doubt that any country without a strong Air Force is at the mercy of any aggressor. Pakistan must build up her Air Force as quickly as possible. It must be an efficient Air Force, Second to None.” Each member of Pakistan Air Force remains committed to living up to the Quaid’s expectations, and defending Pakistan against all threats.
