COBRAS DRAW FIRST BLOOD  


COBRAS DRAW FIRST BLOOD
1959


  The first PAF jet fighter (Cobra) that shot down an enemy aircraft was F-86F Sabre No55-005 of No 15 Squadron. The Squadron was also known as the "Cobras". Flying this aircraft, Flight Lieutenant M Younis downed an Indian Air Force Canberra while it was on a photo-reconnaissance mission high over the Rawalpindi area on 10 April 59, an Eid day. Pilot Officer Rab Nawaz was the Air Defence Controller on radar for this mission.
