US once offered 110 A-7 H Corsairs to Pakistan air force,

A-7 were offered by Dr. Kissenger as a "carrot" to Pakistan for its nuclear program. Pakistan never entertained this offer because these aircrafts had no tactical value to PAF. Read all the official and unofficial records or reports of PAF and you will never find them showing any interest in these aircrafts.

PAF was offered 50 F-5E by Carter Administration in 1978 but again PAF never entertained this offer. Prior to this offer US offered more F-104 which again were never entertained by PAF because by than they had withdrawn their depleted fleet of F-104A from service. After the invasion of Afghanistan by the Russian, Carter Admin. offered Pakistan $400 million aid for five-years which included forwarding on impounded Iranian F-4 which was later withdrawn because of trade for hostage with Iran.

Again, after Russian invasion of Afghanistan some congressman made a suggestion that PAF offered those 110 A-7 but the administration never gave a second thought. Prior to agreeing offer F-16 A/B to PAF a combo of F-5G and F-16 J79 were offered to PAF which they rejected. Portugal, Thailand, and Greece received used A-7 in the mid-80's not in 70's.

The Mi-6 Helicopter Crashed During Evaluation Flight for Pakistan Air Force. The PAF crew and the Russian pilot were killed.1 Air Man Survived The flight Engineer Syed Irshaad Hussain.

That happened in the year 1968, the narration which I heard was that at the time of the crash the helicopter was carrying some external cargo thru the cargo hook.

These bombers served PAF for very short period of time from 1966 to 1969 before their return to China in favour of more F-6's..

Legendary Falcons of the PAF Wing Commander Masood Ahmed Sikandar (Sitara-i-Juraat) flew his last sortie today at 5:17 PM CST to meet his maker.

May Allah SWT raise him to the highest of abodes & grant the family the strength & fortitude to bear this tremendous loss. Ameen

إِنَّا لِلّهِ وَإِنَّـا إِلَيْهِ رَاجِعونَ

Whilst attacking enemy armor, he was wounded when his aircraft was hit by ground fire.

For his valour, courage and excellent leadership Wing Commander Masood Ahmed Sikander was awarded Sitara-i-Juraat.
