A B-57 is Lost of Adampur
Size: 2ft x 3ft Oil   Date: 14-Sep-65
Artwork Located:
Headquarters Air Defence Command

Description:
Flight Lieutenant Altaf Sheikh had just pulled up his B-57 after his dive bombing run over the heavily defended Adampur airfield when it received direct hits from the IAFs medium ack ack guns. As the B-57 began to lose control, the pilot ordered his navigator Flight Lieutenant Bashir Chaudhry to eject and then fired his own seat out of the cockpit. Both landed in the close proximity of the airfield and while attempting to escape, were surrounded by Indian police. They were to become the first prisoners of the war.
