Book on Pakistan Air Force launched

Islamabad: Pakistan Air Force (PAF) on Tuesday launched a book titled 'The Pakistan Air Force 1998-2008: A New Dawn', authored by UK-based journalist Alan Warnes, at PAF Complex, Air Headquarters.

A large number of PAF officials, foreigners and diplomats attended the book launch ceremony, outgoing Chief of the Air Staff Air Chief Marshal Tanvir Mahmood Ahmed being chief guest.

This is a pictorial book, highlighting achievements of PAF. The author and photographer Alan Warnes captured different fighter jets on camera. Different photographs were taken during Kargil war and others showed the age of counterterrorism (2001-2008), women in PAF, different air bases, monouvering aircrafts etc.

Speaking on the occasion, Air Chief Marshal Tanvir Ahmed said launch of the book was an idea of Air Commodore Sarfraz and the author. "It's a wonderful job done by Alan. I'm going home and will definitely thoroughly go through this book," he said.

"For common man, this book got to be a colourful and interesting because all photographs tell you everything in a flash of time," Ahmed said.

Authour Alan said his passion for writing a book on PAF developed when in 2001 he met PAF chief and formed working relationship with PAF. "PAF is the only air force in the world that is co- designed, co-developed, and co-engineered with the UK," he said.

Dr Ishtiaq Ahmed of Quaide Azam University (QAU) said the book was a comprehensive account on professionalism of PAF.

Air Commodore Sarfraz Ahmed Khan said PAF just facilitated Alan but not dictated him. "This is a wonderful book written by a foreigner for PAF. Our infrastructure has not been exposed to him," he said. Daily Times
