Over 30 planes were parked, there including state-of-the-art JF-17 Thunder fighter jets.

Kamra is located about 70 kms from the Pakistani capital Islamabad. Kamra Aeronautical Complex is where Pakistan assembles and overhauls JF-17 Thunder fighter jets in collaboration with China. According to reports, at least 11 Chinese engineers were working at the Kamra Aeronautical Complex.
