The Hawker Fury FB 60 was the PAF's mainstay fighter during the first half of the 1950s. Ninety-two Furies were inducted during the early 1950s. To convert new pilots onto the new fighter, the PAF also acquired five two-seat trainer versions of the Fury, called the Fury T-61. The two-seater could also be used for operational roles.

Description:
In 1947, a Vickers Viking joined the inventory of two Douglas Dakotas and two Harvards of the newly independent Pakistan's first communications flight at Mauripur (Masroor) airfield. The Viking was used exclusively for the travels of Quaid-e-Azam Muhammad Ali Jinnah, the first Governor General of Pakistan. The aircraft is now preserved in the PAF Museum in honoured memory of the Founder of the Nation.

Base Commander's Office PAF Peshawar

Description:
Even as a young Flying Officer, Fuad Shahid Hussain's incredible mastery in low level aerobatics became legendary in the PAF. Manoeuvring just a few feet above the ground in a Hawker Fury, his propeller wash kicking up dust on the runway, or just missing the tree tops in a graceful 8-point roll, he made it all look like child's play. By the early 1950s he was a rapidly rising star - now known by thousands throughout Pakistan as just "F.S." - and a role model of every fighter pilot in the air force. Tragically, "the prince of pilots" lost his life to diabetes at the young age of 40, when he was an Air Commodore.

This team was led by F S Hussain, the renowned flyer and aerial acrobat of his time.
