The Pakistan Day parade this year will attract an international audience, as it will present a number of special features such as the flypast of the newly acquired J-10C fighters.
Chief of Air Staff, Air Chief Marshal Zaheer Ahmad Babar, will lead the flypast by flying an F-16 jet. A squadron of 4.5-generation J-10C aircraft will fly past next, followed by aerobatics performances from formations of JF-17s, F-16s, and Mirage fighter jets.
The rehearsal will be held on 18 March, followed by a full dress rehearsal on 20 March at Shakarparian Parade Ground. Similarly, preparations for the joint parade of Armed Forces have also been completed.
