Pakistan Air Force achieves milestone by completing overhaul of 50th C-130

RAWALPINDI: The engineering section of the Pakistan Air Force (PAF) achieved a milestone by successfully carrying out complete overhaul of the country’s 50th C-130 on Wednesday.

In a ceremony held at PAF Base Nur Khan to mark rollout of the 50th C-130 aircraft, the PAF engineering team handed over the indigenously refurbished aircraft to PAF.

Air Chief Marshall Sohail Aman, the chief guest at the ceremony, lauded PAF’s achievement and stressed  that the challenges faced by the country demand focus on indigenous capabilities.

“It is because of the confidence and professional excellence of the PAF personnel that a number of programmes aimed at indigenisation have been initiated,” he said.

The Air Chief Marshall vowed that the PAF would always come up to the expectations of the nation.

“The Pakistan Air Force has maintained balance of power in the region and if faced by any challenges, it would always fulfill the nation’s expectations,” he said.

The Air Chief Marshall also referred to the PAF's role in the war against terror and said that besides fighter jets, C-130s also contributed significantly in the campaign.
