This particular aircraft is the first ever fighter jet that I saw up close at the age of 4 or 5.

Retired F-86 Sabre of Pakistan Air Force (PAF) on display at Rani Bagh, Hyderabad, photographed on April 29, 2019. Number '996'' is painted on aircraft's nose section.

Probably it's PAF North American F-86F Sabre serial number 54996 (construction number 227-229) former serial number 55-4996 of United States Air Force (USAF).

Indeed, it is marked '54-996' on the aft fuselage, but that should be 55-4996, so there was something 'lost in translation' during repainting :lol:
Good to see it is still there though!
