The first two F-6s (Mig-19s
made in China) are arriving at Sargodha Air Base. The pilots flew
over the Karakorams directly from the Chinese airfield at Hotian.
The F-6 carried VHF radios, Soviet style instruments and many
pieces of equipment that were strange to the PAF pilots and technical
hands. The Pakistani markings were not yet painted and the pilots
wore leather helmets and throat mikes. Many officers and men of
Sargodha Air Base gathered near the runway to watch the landings.
