No 14 Squadron Furies over Buri Ganga
Size: 2ft x 3ft Oil   Date: Mar-54
Artwork Located:
Vice Chief of Air Staff's Office

Description:
In March 1954, Furies of No 14 Squadron flew from Peshawar to Dhaka in East Pakistan (now Bangladesh) on a training flight. The painting shows the Furies passing over the river Buri Ganga (Old Ganges) that flows by the capital city. Few of the pilots could have then foreseen that their squadron, re-equipped with F-86s, was destined to make Dhaka its home for seven years (1964-1971). Courageously fighting two wars from its Tejgaon Air Base in 1965 and 1971 - and outnumbered 10:1 in both - this squadron was to add glorious chapters to its history by destroying 20 enemy aircraft.

The Squadron emblem, a black scimitar, painted near the canopy, still adorns the F-7s that No 14 Squadron flies today.
