Rattles and Tigers

In 1969 in the Pakistan Air Force, a “Rattles” aerobatic display team was created at Sargodha Air Base flying with Shenyang F-6 (a Chinese-built MiG-19) fighters which were painted all black. The team existed for only a few months.

In 1980, another F-6 (MiG-19) aerobatic team, known as the “Tigers”, was created at Sargodha. This time all 5 aircraft were painted in special colors - yellow and red. This team lasted a little longer than its predecessor.
