Afghan air force receives 'Hercules' of an aircraft

Afghan air force Maj. Gen. Abdul Wahab Wardak, AAF commander, accepts two C-130 aircraft from Brig. Gen. John Michel, NATO Air Training Command-Afghanistan commander, during a ceremony Oct. 9, 2013 at Kabul International Airport, Afghanistan. With the addition of the C-130 to the inventory, the AAF now has six different aircraft, which offer a wide variety of capabilities. The aircraft provides medium airlift capabilities, 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/Staff Sgt.
