An UNHAS DC-9-32 in Afghanistan, quite a challenge to fly an aircraft like this over a war-torn area. Opeations from Kandahar are well secured, but many other airfields where this aircraft operated from were less secured. The 1979 built DC-9-32 was eventually, after its long career that started with Texas International Airlines and Continental Airlines, withdrawn from use in 2012. The nine is now permanently stored at Johannesburg where it was last-noted mid-2016.

The metro was incorperated with Alta Flight as C-GKAF in Aug'01 and flew with the same registration from Mar'02 onwards with QuikAir Airline Services.

In nov'10 AAR Airlift (also a cover) became the owner. It was canx from US register 24apr17.

An Il-76 without an impressive history is nearly impossible to find. This Il-76TD was delivered to the Soviet Air Force as CCCP-76659 in late 1985, transferred to Atruvera as RA-76659 in 1994 and flew subsequently with Aviacon Zitotrans, Sukhoi and again for Atruvera up to 2000. Then it became ER-IBL with Airline Transp Inc and Juba Air Cargo up to late 2004. After that, it was seen like this, all white but in service with Tenir Air up to early 2007 when it was transferred to Eastern Express Georgia as 4L-GLP. Since late 2011 is it reported as stored at Osh (Kyrgystan) as 3X-GGO.

This CN235 started its life as EC-014 in Spain back in '88. The Casa was then delivered as EC-EMN to Binter Canarias in February 1989 and was withdrawn from use with that company in 1997. It saw new life with Luftmeister Air in May 1989 as ZS-OGF and three years later transferred to Tiko Air with the same registration. In November 2001 it changed to 5R-MKM with Tiko air and then it was sold to Presidential Airways in August 2006. This company is known as the shadow company of Blackwater. The BW in the regi reveals this a little. Since mid 2008 carried the registration N1269J with Presidential.

An unmarked US Beech in a war-torn country always gets immediate attention! The aircraft, seen here while landing in heatwaves, beonged to the US Department of Justice and most probably transported prosecutors, lawyers or high officials that are involved in trials against war criminals. The aircraft left the Justice fleet in October 2013 and is now flying for a company named Heritage Aviation Management Ltd.

Only small blue titles on the nose section reveal that this IL-76 is flying for Abakan Air. The company performs, according to their website, national and international commercial charter freight flights and other services, including challenging projects and makes unique logistic decisions. The latter for sure, flying this Candid in war-torn areas.

A giant on the northern platform of Kandahar. It's incredible that these huge and slow moving helicopters could survive in a high threat environment of Afghanistan. There were fighter jets are manoeuvring at low level to the max to prevent being shot by Taliban, these Mi-26s are just a sitting duck and just fly...
