    He remained the Air chief till 1969 but don't recall him flying in the Arab Israel war of 1967 nor afterwards.

    Actually since i was just surfing wiki, found this that he scored some kills in Arab Israel war, This is where I seriously got confused, An Air chief going to fight and that to for other militaries...
    Might be wrong as Wiki isn’t reliable...

    I find it hard to believe that chief of PAF, its most senior officer, would actively participate in a foreign war. What would've happened if he was captured or killed?

    No Air Chief in the world would fly operational missions for another country as a mercenary,they command the overall fight rather than fight on the front.

    :lol::lol::lol::lol:

    Misinformation at mass level is alarming for me,
    I had to do that, Nothing felt alright.

    Why would a Chief even participate in aerial fights and that too for a foreign air force/coalition.

    You are a bad lad!

    You know about his background right? PIA, then transferred in to take over from a services legend just weeks before the storm, the controversy with Arjan Singh, the performance of the PAF. You must have read up on all this before getting side-tracked.

    Personally, I admire Asghar Khan as much if not more, but Nur Khan was a ball of fire.

    The top brass Then was extremely professional and experienced in the subcontinent, Those That were the successors of British Indian Army.

    Nowadays ? Not much fights to actually derive a conclusion
