On 3rd of October 1987 two Soviet Mil Mi-24 Gunship helicopters made forced landing, in Washich Torkhow Upper Chitral, due to low fuel and heavy clouds after they had penetrated over 30 miles deep into Pakistani territory. The 6 crewmen were arrested by Chitral Scout Forces and later sent to GHQ Rawalpindi.

But later they were released as a good will gesture. But before their arrest the crew had severely damaged the gunships and they were no longer in flying condition. The area where these gunships landed was almost inaccessible by road and the part of the gunships were brought to Chitral town by Pakistani helicopters in pieces and it took almost a month to finish.

How would a local heli program serve Pakistan's (mostly military) interests?
The way JF-17 did wonders for PAF and blessed our country like we almost gain independence all over again. With our own heli program we will break one more string which is inhibiting us from better defence of our country.
