Hi, I was reading an article published by the Media Centre for National Security, Ministry of Defence, Sri Lanka, and they had this interesting photo published here. "Army Commander Meets Senior Officers in Jaffna"

In this scene, they are walking under a high fixed wing aircraft. Only a portion of it is visible, such as a prop engine, and a portion of the right wing.

I'm curious to find out what aircraft they are flying. BTW, the Sri Lankan army uniform is identical to Bangladesh Army, it seems.


Up, up and Away!

Looks like an AN-32B judging by the tapering of the wing...
