WEB DESK: In appreciation of flying officer Marium Mukhtiar’s contribution to the country, she will be awarded Tamgha-e-Basalat (Medal of Good Conduct), Aaj News reported.
Flying Officer Marium Mukhtiar and Squadron Leader Saqib Abbasi were flying a training mission on an FT-7PG aircraft and when they encountered a “serious in-flight emergency”. The hurried crash landing left Abbasi with a few scratches, but Marium embraced martyrdom.
Born in 1991, she made her parents proud by becoming the first lady pilot from Hazara. She was the only girl from her college batch to qualify the General Duty Pilot test, and she was the sword holder from her Pakistan Air force Training Batch.
