Lots of birds flying around in the residential area...a bird strike and loss of aircraft waiting to happen. Airbases need to be located far away from residential areas.
True but Nur Khan usually houses Transport wing, Viper landing there is one off.....it usually happens on 23 March.....PAF Chief after leading the flypast land there, quick change and joins the other dignitaries at the Venue to witness the parade.

Actually bird strike incidents do happen every now and then, Luckily not fatal for Aircraft most of the times. However an Air Occurrence Report is raised and it's thoroughly investigated. Flight Safety Officer (FSO) on ground and Pilot in air both are responsible to avoid bird strikes. Can't just abandon or relocate the operational bases.

How much life is left in early block 15 birds that have even gone through mlu
They were all modernized in Turkey in just the last few years. A lot of life left in them still. Apart from Rafale there’s nothing in the sub continent to match F16s at the moment.
