More women join Pakistan Air Force

A Chinese-made F-7PG fighter jet of the Pakistan Air Force takes off from Mushaf base in Sargodha, North Pakistan June 7, 2013. Ayesha Farooq, from Punjab province's historic city of Bahawalpur, is one of 19 women who have become pilots in the Pakistan Air Force over the last decade - there are five other female fighter pilots, but they have yet to take the final tests to qualify for combat. A growing number of women have joined Pakistan's defence forces in recent years as attitudes towards women change. Picture taken June 7, 2013.[Photo/Agencies]
