PAF Hero.

Byline: M. Asif,

Pakistan has produced great personalities in every field who made us proud over the years. Recently, we lost one such personality, Group Captain (R) SaifulAzam. The PAF hero had the unique distinction and a world record of flying as a fighter pilot for four countries, namely Pakistan, Jordan, Iraq and Bangladesh.

In the 1965 Pakistan-India war, he shot down an Indian fighter jet and was awarded Sitara-i-Jurat for his courage and skills. In the 1967 Arab-Israel war, he shot down an Israeli fighter aircraft. To date, he is the only fighter pilot who has shot down the maximum number of Israeli fighter jets. He was also given the 'Top Gun' award by the US Air Force and was included among the 22 'Living Eagles'.
