Sri Lanka had a long reliance on 748s that served in Air Ceylon and Sri Lanka Air Force. # 2 Squadron used 5 (including one ex Air Ceylon) as an air bridge to supply the beleaguered northern Jaffna garrison from 1983 to 1995. The use of SAMs by terrorists to shoot down 2 (killing approx. 105) led to the introduction of An-32Bs and new tactics. This airframe is setup for a mock flight including sound and video monitors for forward and side view. The kids loved this 10 min circuit of Ratmalana AFB
