Your guess which one We flew down with the newly re-constituted Iraqi AF on a 40 year old C130. Yay! We flew down with the PSD and strap-hangers for the DPM of Iraq. Those guys had some pretty trick Kalashnikovs and mostly wore 5.11 clothes with IZ made plate carriers and kit - kind of a stange dicotomy. Our first attempt was during a shamaal (sand storm) and the new Najaf International Airport is VFR (Visual Flight Rules) only. On appraoch the senior C130 Pilot, USAF Advisor had them pull out as they could not see the runway due to the sand. The MAJ said that it was a good thing that we didn't know how close we were to snuffing it. Thanks. for. that. Yay again! More below the fold.more...
