Only a few months before this picture was taken, this Mi-8MTV-1 was in use with Tajikistan Al. The helicopter was once delivered as CCCP-25167 to AFL/Tajikistan-DYU in July 1990 and transferred to Takikistan Al as EY-25167 in mid-1990. Late 2005 the helicopter was donated to the Afghan government and in March 2006 it still carried the Tajiki registration. Check also AH photo https://www.airhistory.net/photo/155963/EY-25167 when it was pictured at Islamabad, Pakistan and note the difference.

This MH-47E was once delivered as CH-47C 74-22289 and accepted on 31 Aug'76. It was converted to MH-47E 91-00497 and delivered to the 2-160th SOAR on 21 Oct'93. The special ops Chinook crashlanded on 11 July 2006 near Sangin (Afghanistan) during operation Mountain Thrust, the damaged airframe was destroyed by coalition forces in an airstrike. Multiple 1-160th CH-47Ds, MH-47Gs, UH-60Ls and two HMX-1 VH-60Ns landed on or near HQ ISAF that is close to the US Embassy. Overhead was an AC-130 and a flight of A-10s gave Close Air Support while F-16s gave top cover. Quite an operation!

This Blackhawk belonged to HMX-1 and accompanied POTUS during an unexpected visit to the US Embassy-Kabul. Multiple 1-160th CH-47Ds, MH-47Gs, UH-60Ls and two HMX-1 VH-60Ns landed on or near HQ ISAF that is close to the US Embassy. Overhead was an AC-130 and a flight of A-10s gave Close Air Support while F-16s gave top cover. Quite an operation! Unfortunately, the HMX-1 helicopters are very difficult to read and the weather was not that good this day. But this is really 163266 :-)

Due to tight security measures, not all helicopters could be appraoched, but this one was.

This Herc C4 was sadly written off on 12 February 2007 during a movement of troops to a Tactical Landing Zone (TLZ) in Maysaan province, Iraq. After a Tactical Air Traffic Controller at the TLZ approved the landing, the landing went uneventful until the crew experienced a load bang and a bright flash during touch-down, caused by two IEDs. The aircraft slewed off the left-hand side of the runway and a left wing fire started The captain brought the aircraft to an immediate halt. Damage to the C4 appeared to large, so the aircraft was blown up on the scene.

A component of the German Transalls was dedicated to special operations support, these machines being fitted with modernized flight system / navigation avionics, and cockpits compatible with night vision goggles (NVGs). These aircraft - reportedly some 24 - received an external modification on the side of the fuselage just in front of the wings. The EloKa self-defense system was developed to enhance the Transall's self-protection capabilities during missions flown in support of the German ISAF Troops operating in Afghanistan.

This Mi-8 was first seen without any serial presentation in mid 2005, it received a fresh external serial in March 2006. The colours on the fuselage refer to the Afghan flag. The helicopter was in use with the Afghan government / Ministry of Interior. It flew alongside YA-TAB and TAD, that sported nearly the same colours.

This "Candid" was built as Il-76MD and received registration CCCP-86903 within the Soviet Air Force before its delivery on 10 Mar'83. The bird was sold to Atlant as UR-86903 and converted to Il-76TD in '91. The airframe was 2 times reregistred within Atlant, to UR-76382 in Oct'94 and to RA-76382 in Feb'95.

A component of the German Transalls was dedicated to special operations support, these machines being fitted with modernized flight system / navigation avionics, and cockpits compatible with night vision goggles (NVGs). These aircraft - reportedly some 24 - received an external modification on the side of the fuselage just in front of the wings. The EloKa self-defense system was developed to enhance the Transall's self-protection capabilities during missions flown in support of the German ISAF Troops operating in Afghanistan.

At the time this picture was made, this CASA was registered with Devon Holding & Leasing, a shadow company that is related to CIA operations. The aircraft was registered to N464HA (still with Devon Holding & Leasing Inc.) in June 2012 and Quality Aviation LLC (still as N464HA) in February 2020.m With the latter company it was reregistered to N883VA (March 2020) and N883QA (August 2020).
