Base Commander's Office PAF Peshawar
Even as a young Flying Officer, Fuad Shahid Hussain's incredible mastery in low level aerobatics became legendary in the PAF. Manoeuvring just a few feet above the ground in a Hawker Fury, his propeller wash kicking up dust on the runway, or just missing the tree tops in a graceful 8-point roll, he made it all look like child's play. By the early 1950s he was a rapidly rising star - now known by thousands throughout Pakistan as just "F.S." - and a role model of every fighter pilot in the air force. Tragically, "the prince of pilots" lost his life to diabetes at the young age of 40, when he was an Air Commodore.
