    New Site on Pakistan Air Force

    Check out:

    http://www.pafcombat.com/

    It is a new site on the Air Combat history of Pakistan's Air Force.

    This site, run by a reitred PAF Air.Cmde, debunks many of Pakistan's grandiose claims in past wars with India. Most specifically, it puts the final curtain on Sq.Ldr.MM Alam's claim of having 11 kills, while the site reduces it to 5.

    The narratives of a few aerial combats make a fantastic read for Air Combat afficionados.

    All in all a great site.

    RE: New Site on Pakistan Air Force

    A nice site indeed, but it is a little mistaken regarding a Six Day War kill (June 5, over Mafraq, Jordan). Hanania Bole' was not a captain, he was a 2nd lieutenant fresh out of the academy and was promoted to 1st lieutenant only following his death. They also fail to mention his unit which was the 116th "Flying Wing" squadron.
