Air Million Cargo used this An-32B while it was operating from Kabul (Afghanistan). The all-white, no titles bird was pictured only a few month before a tragic event while it was taxying to the runway of Kabul. Unfortunately, the aircraft crashed near Lashkar Gar (Afghanistan) on 24 April 2006 whilst operating in support of the US Government anti-narcotics bureau.
This An-32A was delivered to the Afghan Air Force in 1991, survived the war and was flown to Tadjikistan in 2005 for an overhaul. The aircraft was returned to the Afghan National Army - Air Corps (ANA-AC), 382 Regiment on 6 January 2006. It soldiered on through the continues war until June 2011, when it was withdrawn from use as the final An-32 of the ANA-AC. Its fate is unknown.
The Sri Lankan AF had 10 An-32s but only seven remained by this time; one was wrecked on take-off in 2.97 when the gear was retracted too early, one crashed into the sea near Negombo in 9.95 and one was shot down 11.95, carrying 81 and 68 people, respectively
