A Dutch Viper blasts away from Kandahar airfield, armed with its standard 20mm Gatling gun, AIM-9 Sidewinders and Guided Bomb Unit (GBU) 12s underneath the wings, the pilot and its aircraft are ready to attack Taliban forces somewhere in Afghanistan. It is bizarre to photograph actual combat missions like this!

During 2010 this DeHavilland was said to be operated by Presidential Airways, but at the same time, the aircraft was assigned since 2009 to a shadow company named EP Aviation LLC, that operates aircraft for the then US Blackwater organization. During late 2010, the aircraft was transferred to AAR Airlift, a company that provides the US government operational aviation solutions. The aircraft is reported as stored since 2013, but no location is known to me.

A US Department of State UH-1H in a striking colorscheme at a remote platform of Kandahar airfield. The US Department of State Air Wing (DOSAW) is operating former US Army Hueys in a secretive role (among others, they flew anti-drug missions over Afghanistan). Unfortunately, not all former identities are known, like with this desert painted 669.

A museum named Omar Mine Museum, somewhere in Kabul city, showed me very unexpectedly a series of preserved aircraft. Several once Afghan Air Force aircraft and helicopters were kind of preserved, but the war in the country badly damaged the infrastructure of the museum as well as the aircraft. Luckily the whole was protected by a large wall, that prevented a possible even worse situation... current status of the museum is unknown. This Su-7 was a composite aircraft (two construction numbers were seen 5806 left and 5804 right main wheel bay. The Fitter was repainted with donated money.

Luckily the whole was protected by a large wall, that prevented a possible even worse situation... current status of the museum is unknown. The serial of the Mi-24, from the first series built, was extremely hard to read, it was 344 or 334. Incredible that this ugly machine ever served as a gunship!
