According to Tribune, Prime minister renamed the PAF base to give homage to Air Commodore Muhammad Mehmood Alam. ‘Air commodore MM ALam is a pride of the Pakistan air force’ he said.
In Indo Pak war, MM ALam shot down four Indian airplanes in less than 30 seconds and seven airplanes in his air-to-air battle making a world record that no one has broken until now. He was awarded Sitara i Jurrat for his outrageous effort and courage.
Sadly, MM Alam left this world on 21 March 2013.
