A video shot for India Independence Day celebrations left many in the Indian Government red faced as it featured a Pakistan fighter jet flying with the Tricolour. According to Ndtv the video, posted on twitter, was, however, removed after many people pointed out that the jets were in fact Pakistani aircraft. The opening portion of the culture ministry’s over one- minute video celebrating ’70 years of independence’ featured an animated sequence of the two JF-17 flying with the Indian flag. A government source said it was an inadvertent mistake as the jf-17 looks similar to India’s Tejas light combat aircraft and it is difficult for an ordinary citizen to know the difference between the two types of aircraft.
