AP-AFR in basic colours of PIA with Lebanese Air Transport (LAT) fuselage titles and tail logo photographed at Karachi Airport in 1967. Two PIA Lockheed L-1049C Super Constellations (registrations AP-AFR and AP-AFS) were to be acquired by LAT but for some reason the Lebanese airline did not take delivery of these two aircraft. A pair of Hawker Siddeley HS.121 Trident IE-103 aircraft, one in PIA livery and the other one in Pakistan Air Force (PAF) markings (registration AP-AUG), are also seen in this photo

AP-AWV survived an act of terrorism when a bomb placed under aircraft's passenger seat exploded at Islamabad Airport on July 5, 1975. The explosion ripped a hole in AP-AWV fuselage. Luckily at the time incident the Boeing 707 was on ground after completing flight from Karachi and there were no human casualties in this incident. In 1976, AP-AWV was gifted to Bangladesh where it was registered as S2-ABQ and served Biman Bangladesh Airlines
