No night flying activities without the guidance of ATC 'Air Traffic Control'.

ATC monitors every move with safety as their primary concern. Do you fancy a career as Air Traffic Controller ?

Very tough job it is. It requires much attention and concentration because safe landing and taking off is on the mercy of ATC controller.
The real hero on the ground.

"PAF Mirage III ROSE Being Loaded With Weapons"

As the sun beats down upon him, an Airman wipes the sweat from his brow, spreading the layer of grease & oil from his hands onto his forehead. Consumed by the task at hand, he remains focused knowing his jet needs to be ready to take off within the hour.

He is accustomed to such working conditions by now the extreme summer heat, freezing winter cold & pouring rain. The long hours & necessity to stop what he is doing & seek shelter are all a part of his routine. He is a fighter aircraft crew chief. What he does is not a job, it is a lifestyle.

As a crew chief, you have to enjoy working in the cold, in the heat and in the rain. You have to enjoy getting your hands dirty & putting in the long hours. Seeing your jet take off two or three times a day & return home safely each time that’s the real reward. Having that pilot climb out & say, ‘Great job chief’ makes it worth it.”

There really is a lot of work that goes into every jet on the flightline. Crew chiefs usually put in about 12 to 14 hours of work a day. But everything they do, they do as a team. They start their day together, & they end it together.

So come heat, cold, rain, endless days and alarm reds, the crew chiefs of Pakistan Air force remain focused on the mission & continue to make sure their jets take off & come back safely every day

Is Malaysia working with South Korea on the New fighter? Isn't it Indonesia who already has them.
