The Pakistan Air Force's (PAF) JF-17 Thunder jets and F-16s captivated Karachi audiences in an airshow display to commemorate the first anniversary of 'Operation Swift Retort' which had resulted in the downing of two Indian planes that had violated Pakistani airspace.
A large number of people turned up to Sea View to see the PAF in action, undeterred by the warm weather and news of the novel coronavirus having entered the city.
Earlier, Director General of Inter-Services Public Relations (ISPR) Maj Gen Babar Iftikhar had said that February 27 commemorates the resolve of the Pakistan Armed Forces against any aggression.
In a tweet, DG ISPR said: "The way we responded on this day is a proof that any misadventure by enemies of Pakistan will always be defeated. Our adversaries will be surprised with our bold responses every time."
