This had been going on for years at one of the border crossings, very popular tourist attraction for the locals.
I had read that in recent years the prancing and dancing had been cut back as both sides tried to improve relations but that seems to have gone out of the window this week.........

It's a historic spat between to vile nations of savages.

India is marginally less vile than Pakistan.

Well done that Man! :thumbup::thumbup::thumbup:

The Gnat is credited by many independent and Indian sources as having shot down seven Pakistani Canadair Sabres in the 1965 war.[24][25] while two Gnats were downed by PAF fighters. During the initial phase of the 1965 war, an IAF Gnat, piloted by Squadron Leader Brij Pal Singh Sikand, landed at an abandoned Pakistani airstrip at Pasrur and was captured by the PAF. Two Lockheed F-104 Starfighters claimed to have forced the Gnat down.[26][27] This Gnat is displayed as a war trophy in the Pakistan Air Force Museum, Karachi. After the ceasefire, one Pakistani Cessna O-1 was shot down on 16 December 1965 by a Gnat.[24]

The Gnats were used again by India in the Indo-Pakistani War of 1971 against Pakistan.[28][29] The most notable action was the Battle of Boyra where the first dogfights over East Pakistan (Bangladesh) took place. The Indian Air Force (IAF) Gnats downed two PAF Canadair Sabres in minutes and badly damaged one. The Pakistan Air Force claims that one Gnat was shot down, which was proved incorrect. Another notable dogfight involving a Gnat was over Srinagar airfield where a lone Indian pilot held out against six Sabres,[30] scoring hits on two of the Sabres in the process,[31][32] before being shot down. Gnat pilot Nirmal Jit Singh Sekhon was posthumously honoured with the Param Vir Chakra (India's highest gallantry award), becoming the only member of the IAF to be given the award.


The Red Arrows use Gnats when I was a nipper in Fairford and later Kemble RAF bases. When I was a bit um, less athletically built and younger, my dad who was a bowser driver for the RAF managed to blag a sit in one at RAF Fairford in one of the hangers. Also managed to get on Concorde with Brain Trubshaw as our guide once as well. Good days :smile
