    Obviously parked there in connection with IDEAS weapon exhibition at Expo Center. I just don’t get one thing, its a military only exhibition, civilians are not allowed,they hold exhibition bang in the middle of the city and seal up the whole place . I just don’t understand the rationale behind this stupidity. Hold the exhibition at some secure military base like Base Faisal or Ormara Naval base, make on site arrangements for VIP accommodation for visiting foreign dignitaries and spare Karachiite the inconvenience resulting from sealing of city’s main artery Shara-e-Faisal and Gulshan area bang in the middle of the city.

    Ah…..Even a non-functional clock is accurate twice a day! I agree with doctor on this one.

    I don’t think its "parked" there doc. Its on the move heading towards expo. Thats y the sergeant has the road blocked. On a closer look, i guess its being towed by the jeep in front of it. Chacha Islam, kindly shed some light.

    I think its JF-17, the fighter jet which was manufactured by Chinese and Pakistani engineers and is already under production at PAF-Kamra.

    The point is, no matter what make the plane is and where and how its moved, it takes us one more step towards the IDEAS and that my firends mean a near end to our ‘almost’ free traffic flow.

    @zaidi bhai, you are right: this is JF17 …

    aur ajj tu tufaan-e-batameezi machaa rakhi theee un logoo nay! the whole of Sharah-e-Faisal was blocked!

    btw, I am off to Ideas tommarrow ….looking forward for it…

    Why not load it on a low trailer, to keep it under the height limit of the underpass, rather then risk damage to a multimillion dollar jet plane by towing it on the road like this…
    I have seen a number of these trailers, the center part of the trailer is designed to be a foot or so above the ground, between the front and the rear tires of the trailer.

    Fauji…Fauji hey.

    @barrister, do let us know abt it. I was really desperate to go for it but some other high priority & more pricey stuffs came up.

  14. IUnknown (iunknown) on November 25th, 2008 @ 3:24 pm

    are there passes available for it? i want to go badly there.
    how can we go there before the public day?

  15. barristerakc on November 26th, 2008 @ 7:49 am

    I had been to other defense exhibitions in Dubai and in the UK, IDEAS 2008 is at par if not better. I was impressed yesterday especially with the quality of arms produced by WAH Ordinance Factory & JF Thunder was alright (although , it looked very Chinese – they could have come up with a better design – exteriors)…….

    IUnknown Bhai,
    It is a strictly B2B affairs. I am part of a EU delegation there…..

  16. d0ct0r on November 26th, 2008 @ 2:22 pm

    IUnknown according to a new reporter its open for public from today till the final day.

  17. ameerhamza on November 26th, 2008 @ 3:37 pm

    Yes, why do they have to do the exhibition in the center of the city and disturb everyone else.

  18. barristerakc on November 26th, 2008 @ 4:44 pm

    *spills water on doctor*

    cool down….cool down!

    These exhibitions should be exhibit in the middle of the city or atleast there must be some alternative place for it.
    I saw three ambulance were stuck due to this bamboozle IDEAs.
