14 January 2018

The Nigerian Air Force (NAF) has received a further five Pakistan Aeronautical Complex (PAC) Kamra Super Mushshak basic trainer aircraft to add to the five delivered in mid-2017.

The second batch of piston-engined aircraft arrived at NAF Base Kaduna on 14 January having been airlifted from Pakistan via Ilyushin Il-76 ‘Candid’ transport aircraft, the air force’s director of public relations announced. NAF Base Kaduna is home to the 401 Flying Training School.

The aircraft will now be assembled before joining the first five that were delivered in July 2017 (four Super Mushshak’s had previously been loaned to the NAF, and have since been returned to Pakistan).
