During the Indo-Pakistan War of 1965, this Gnat of No.23 Squadron strayed into Pakistani airspace and was forced to land at Pasrur air base. It was recovered intact and in flying condition by the Pakistani Air Force and was thoroughly tested. The aircraft is now on display at the PAF Museum in Karachi. This Gnat was one of the original 23 sent by Folland to India.
