The Polish-Pakistani Air Force

As soon as independent Pakistan was created in 1947, the new government in Karachi asked the British RAF to recommend them the most experienced and trusted pilots who would be able to build the air force of Pakistan. After the Second World War the British RAF and other European air forces were destroyed, which is why the British recommended Poles to Pakistan. In 1947 a young officer Władysław Turowicz and Polish pilots under his command landed in Karachi to set up the Pakistan Air Force.
