Cockpit video of the Pakistani JF-17 Thunder during air display at Paris Air Show

Interesting video brings you on board a PAC JF-17 during the air display at PAS 2015.

The JF-17 Thunder is a light, single-engine, multi-role combat aircraft jointly manufactured by the Pakistan Aeronautical Complex (PAC) and the Chengdu Aircraft Corporation (CAC) of China.

The Pakistan Air Force plans to operate 160 JF-17 multirole jets about one-third of those are already in active service.

Three JF-17s are currently attending Paris Air Show in an effort to attract more customers: during the Air Show the first export order was confirmed and signed with an undisclosed Asian country (believed to be Myanmar).

Here is footage showing the Pakistan Air Force JF-17 performing aerobatic maneuvers during its display at PAS 2015.

H/T to Giuliano Ranieri for the heads-up
