Not quite Dave
Bolkow 108 Junior is a license built MFI-17 which is the same designation of the Mushak. The Pakistanis installed a bigger engine and prop, fitted a 3rd seat in the baggage compartment, it has wing hard points for ground attack and is basically the big sister of my Cygnet :D

@Volo - So sorry, didnt check avcom - only on again now - For future reference, there is no fee for driving in

The event was a huge success, around 40 aircraft and 30K raised.

Massive thanks to everyone that joined and all the sponsors. Please check all the good aviation publications for an update and more details.
