#1 PAF Wing Commander Nauman Akram of the Griffins squadron entered the half loop of the Split -S manouevre at an unsafe altitude. He was unable to pull up and may have even passed out due to extreme g forces.

#2 Reminds of the press hysteria about all the scary, scary weapons some 3rd world s-hole has. Having is orders of magnitude away from weaponizing, or in some loud and smokey cases even making them work.

#4 Islamabad during the rehearsal is a freaky place. The Paks are extremely serious about the practice itself.
Despite a general obvious well displayed air of half assedness. Not worth going into, did not enjoy . Thinking WTF these clowns have nukes.

#5 From the bottom end of the experience/expertise spectrum... lacking a light, consistent hand (not to mention talent and diligence), my compensating simming gimmick used to be the well-placed and timed split-S. Indecently fun luring an unwary pursuer to their doom. Sad way to go IRL.
