Afghan air force receives 'Hercules' of an aircraft

Afghan air force 1st Lt. Khial Shinwari, C-130 pilot, raises the Afghan flag as one of two of the newly delivered C-130H models to the AAF taxis onto the ramp during a ceremony Oct. 9, 2013 at Kabul International Airport, Afghanistan. Shinwari is one of the two first AAF C-130 pilots. Adding the C-130 to the AAF inventory provides medium airlift capabilities for the AAF, allowing for better range as well as increased passenger and cargo movement. The C-130H can cross the entirety of Afghanistan without refueling and can carry 10 times the amount of cargo of a Cessna 208, another aircraft in the AAF inventory. (U.S. Air Force photo/Capt.
