The last aerial encounter of 1971 War turned
out to be a dogfight between a supersonic MIG-21 and the relatively
slow and much older F-86 Sabre. The F-86 flown by Flight Lieutenant
Maqsood Amir emerged as the victor and the Indian Mig-21 pilot
Flight Lieutenant Tejwant Singh who ejected after being hit, was
taken prisoner. Squadron Leader Rab Nawaz was the Radar Controller
for this interception.
