Once on this fighter, he flew with a friend on patrol. Soon an order came from the ground to urgently return, because Pakistani planes attacked their airfield. Near their base, the Indians encountered a pair of Sabers who were returning from the raid. Neb took aim and fired at the nearest enemy plane. The Pakistani caught fire and collapsed - this was Vinod's first victory.
