PAF F-86E 54026 was the plane flown by Sqn.Ldr. M.M. Alam on fatefull 7 September 1965. The plane was later shown with 9 kill markings for confirmed and several 'damaged' Indian aircraft and the Pakistani propaganda made a great deal of Sqn.Ldr. Alam's claims for that day, reporting he shot down no less but five IAF Hunters within less than a minute, and a total of seven Indian fighters on the same day. A closer investigation of available evidence proved that Alam never claimed as many kills himself, as well as that kills credited to him by Pakistani officials were actually scored by several pilots over the course of the whole day.
