Allah(swt) bless the eternal soul of your cousin and his martyred colleagues. This is the ultimate sacrifice that any family may make in the service of their people. I wish my words could do some sort of justice to the sacrifice made today - knowing however that they never can, I hope only that Allah(swt) accepts my duahs and the duahs of all Pakistanis on this day. We stand with heads bowed and humble in reverence for our shaheeds.Pilot was my cousin. Pray for all the departed souls.
In such circumstances, shouldn't external deployments of aviation assets be curtailed to support internal operations?Internally Army Aviation these days is in critical phase. Lack of funds are causing severe limitations for regular flights and maintenance issues. The EC Fennec is a good and modern helicopter aptly suited for high altitude flying. It’s unfortunate to hear about is fatal Crash. Lets hope it’s not human error due to any maintenance shortcomings etc.
