Boy, I hope they agreed such a welcome beforehand. Imagine the pilot reporting to his VIP passenger, Pakistani fighters approaching. :-))

I find it interesting that the blue cheat line on this Air China livery makes the 747-400 look much longer and sleek enough that if it were not for those winglets, one could be forgiven for thinking it was a 747-8. Those non-Chevron'ed' P&W also clear up the fact it not a 747-8 but fuselage wise, it does look longer even though it not.

I think this is standard protocol to have your fighter jets escort the visiting leaders plane, esp if the visitor is high profile. in this case happens to be the grand savior.

What a beautiful sight. The 744 is the most beautiful 747 ever. This was 747 in its prime. What a grand welcome though. The photo is amazing. I cannot imagine how this photo is possible without special privileges. Thanks for sharing it and letting us enjoy this privileged view.

I'm not talking about how advanced the JF-17 is, but one thing is for sure, the photographers of Pakistan AF are highly professional and skilled compared to their colleagues in China. by YU Ming
