Officer's Mess PAF Sargodha
To keep their aircraft in top shape, it was a normal practice in the IAF fighter squadrons to assign each plane to the care of a pilot. Flying Officer Zafar A Chaudhry of No 7 Squadron (later to be one of the PAFs air chiefs) proudly 'owned' RN-183, the Spitfire Mark XVI which he named "Nilofur", inspired by the beautiful Turkish princess who had married a son of the Nizam of Hyderabad.
