In recent times, the escalating security conditions of Pakistan have become an intense issue for the incumbent government. Certainly, the extension of Chief of Army Staff (COAS) General Qamar Javed Bajwa’s service tenure has stirred a debate among the masses. However, recently, COAS General Qamar Javed Bajwa visited the Pakistan Air Force (PAF) Mushaf base in Sargodha.

Apparently, the exceptional skill set of the Pakistan Armed Forces needs no introduction when it comes to ‘flying’ fighter jets. Despite the heated ties between Pakistan and India, the PAF, in October, escorted an Indian flight after it entered into Pakistan’s airspace. This week, on Monday, COAS General Bajwa flew an F-16 fighter jet along with his companion while visiting the Mushaf Base in Sargodha.
Official Twitter handle of DG ISPR also posted about the combat action simulation mission!

The purpose of the visit was to maneuver for a combat action simulation mission at the Mushaf base of Pakistan Air Force (PAF). Regarding the official visit, a press release was later issued by ISPR carrying details of the action simulation mission.

Here’s the official press release of ISPR!
Well, the meetup session happened after COAS along with the CAS completed the mission and returned back to the base. Moreover, General Qamar Bajwa praised the dedication and professionalism of the Pakistan Air Force. Speaking of the services, the COAS thanked the force for the skillful and effectively unmatched services provided to the nation at needed times.
Further, General Bajwa thanked the Air Chief Marshal who was also his company on the trip for his visionary leadership. Earlier this year, after presenting evidence, General Bajwa received a 6-months extension from the Supreme Court (SC). Earlier this year, in August, Prime Minister Imran Khan had approved COAS General Bajwa’s three-year extension in his service tenure.
