During the operations against Pakistan in December, 1971, Flight Lieutenant Syed Shahid Hussain Naqvi was serving with a Fighter Squadron. He flew nineteen missions deep into enemy territory. On the 9th December, 1971, while on a visual tactical reconnaissance mission in the Western Sector, he flew for nearly twelve minutes over the area despite heavy ground fire and brought back information. He also flew a number of operational missions to Railway yards. Though these areas were heavily defended, he pressed home his attacks undeterred and set ablaze a number of trains carrying fuel and also goods wagons. During these missions, his weapon delivery had always been accurate and effective and because of his tactics all our aircraft returned safe to base from their missions.
