ISLAMABAD: Amidst thundering applause by the spectators, Pakistan Air Force’s JF-17 Thunder exhibited its dazzling aerial display during the opening day of Radom International Airshow at Radom-Sakdu Airport, Poland, on Sunday.

Painted in the colour scheme of Pakistan’s national flag, the pride of the nation, JF-17 roared in the Polish skies and left the spectators spellbound with its breathtaking manoeuvres, said a PAF press release issued here.

The thundery performance by PAF’s display pilot, Wing Commander Zeeshan Baryar, included some extraordinary aerobatics like the muscle climb, thunder turns, slow speed performance and inverted flight.

Air Marshal Arshad Malik, Vice Chief of the Air Staff, was also there to witness the aerial and static display of JF-17 Thunder, which has been co-developed by Pakistan and China.

He interacted with the air and ground crew of PAF and appreciated their flawless performance in the show. He said that PAF’s participation in the show would help project the positive image of Pakistan in the world.
