A tweet by Proud Khaki, a Twitter account supposed to be handle by some armed forces official, went viral with a picture of Tom Cruise’s lookalike, Squadron Leader Yasir, in Pakistan Air Force. The tweet reads, ‘
#PAFJF-17’s Pilot briefing Ms. Tehmina Janjua, ambassador of Pakistan to Italy at #ParisAirShow.” This JF-17 pilot later identified as Squadron Leader Yasir.
Squadron Leader Yasir was photographed while briefing Pakistani Ambassador to Italy Tehmina Janjua about the aircraft during the Paris Air Show. Sporting his black wrap-arounds and a candidly casual and carefree poise Sq Leader looked like Tom Cruise straight out of Top Gun.
Few doubted Yasir as Tom Cruise from Hollywood movie, Top Guns.
Abbas Nasir, a veteran journalist called it a good strategy to send Tom Cruise lookalike.
It is reported that Pakistan Air Force team has won the first export order of its JF-17 at Paris Air Show. Air Commodore Khalid Mahmood says contract has been signed with an Asian country. (Source)
