The fifth death anniversary of the 1965 war hero Muhammad Mahmood Alam is being observed today (Sunday).
MM Alam is remembered for his remarkable show of brilliance on 7 September 1965 for establishing a world record of downing five Indian aircrafts in less than a minute, the last four within thirty seconds.
In a total, he downed as many as nine Indian aircrafts in the aerial fighting and damaged two others in his F-86 Sabre fighter.
Muhammad Mahmood Alam died in Karachi on 18 March 2013 at the age of seventy-seven years. APP/AFP
