i love you pakistan and love you pakistan army and pak air force.Pakistan will live forever and will lead the world one day ishallah
Nice video, first I've seen of the JF-17 flying. I thought the Israelis were rumoured to have contributed to its development as well?
Its a surprisingly good looking aircraft while in flight. The Input of "western planes" experienced Pakistani design engineers is evident as far as airframe design goes with the LERX and DSI. Looks a lot like f-18 at some angles and also a touch of F-16 on the wings. I wasn't expecting a plane which would send shock waves in the Russian Aircraft industry and also in the western Aircraft industry as an extremely potent competitor for 4rth generation aircraft market. A lot of countries would see this an extremely cost effective replacement for there aging fleets.
what ever the origins , every thing is acceptable, if beautiful. true for everything isnt it
Great ground-shots at the beginning, with the "panoramic" screen shape really emphasizing the sleek lines of the fighter. Wonder how much gas they burn up at take-off!!
interesting especially as to its origins !!
