At the time the photo was taken, Ugandan aircrews were training extensively with East-European instructors. This AF-627 was one of the most active Mi-17s around. Here the helicopter returns from a short training flight over Entebbe. One Mi-17 (AF-603) accompanied three UgAF Mi-24s as a deployment in Somalia (12 Aug 2012). The four helicopters would support the African Union mission in the war-torn country. All three Mi-24s crashed between Nanyuki AFB and Garissa, possibly all due to terrain.
