A rare visitor, a South African turbo prop Dakota at Tarin Kowt. It had a crew of two males and a female. For self-protection the crew had bought a handgun for when they had to make an emergency landing. The crew told us that they sometimes were being fired upon from above because the fully loaded aircraft in hot and high conditions had to fly through the valleys instead of high over the mountains. Great crew and I hope they made it without scratches!

Not to nit pick but that date can't be right based on the fact we left KAF in 2013 and the kit they were wearing went OOS prior to 2010.
