    Flt. Lt. Khalid Mehmood of No. 14 Squardon (PAF Minhas) shot down 3 Afghan fighters (2 MiG-23s and 1 Su-22) while flying in an F-16. His first kill was on September 12, 1988 when he with his No. 2 successfully engaged 6 MiG-23 aircraft of Afghan airforce on a bombing mission inside the Pakistan territory and managed to shot down 2 of them. His third kill came just after 3 weeks when on November 03, 1988, he challenged a formation of 3 Afghan Su-22s near Kohat and after a short dogfight, shot down one of the planes. The entire incident was observed from the ground by personnel of the Pakistan Army and by Phatan tribesmen. The wreckage of the Afghan Su-22 fell 10 NM from Thal on the bank of river Kurram. The picture on the left shows Flt. Lt. Khalid being presented a Kalashinkov rifle by Maj. Gen. Ghazi-ud-din on behalf of tribesmen.
