Plant Protection to Army Aviation

Department of Plant Protection - Now Pakistan Army Aviation - a rare colour photograph of a DHC-2 Beaver impressed into service by the Pakistani Army Aviation Wing. Beavers were used extensively for recce and utility duties during the 1971 Operations

One of these aircraft probably had a near encounter with an IAF MiG-21 in the air. I say probably because this happened in the night and one cant be sure. The Beaver fortunately (for its occupants) managed to make it to safety.
