Whats going on with the TUAF a400? It appears it was heading directly for Kabul and then now on Pak airspace.

Did it airdrop soldiers?

If true, yikes. Denied permission to land and then ran out of fuel. Uzbek had options. They should have let them land then arrested them if they were that concerned about it. But denying landing rights to a plane with out fuel has got to be against ICAO and just decent ethics.

If I were the pilot I would have declared an emergency, landed, and dealt with the consequences on the ground.

It was an Afghan military plane, not a civil one.
ICAO stands for International Civil Aviation Organization.
I'm not sure why would you think ICAO rules are applicable to military aircrafts.

Still having a hard time believing they packed 800 people onto a C-17 but recently saw this posted.

Maybe. But you are just assuming you could "[fly and] land" a military plane into Uzbek territory against their wishes. This might be incorrect.


And consider the fact that Uzbekistan shares a border with Afghanistan and how many ethnic Uzbeks live in Afghanistan - maybe trying not to show you've sympathy for the previous rulers of the country and escalate tensions.

Looks like it landed or is landing at Islamabad

EDIT: Looks like it landed at PAF Base Nur Khan

They can turn it off but the Air Force doesn’t want to get into a mid air either. In this case there is no real threat to their aircraft up high so they probably leave it on. When they are transiting other FIRs they need to me monitored and controlled just like everyone else

UA 829 did cross the Wakkan Corridor. (https://www.flightradar24.com/UAL829/28cc7862) So it apparently stayed in Afghan airspace for less than 25 km and about one minute and a half.
They probably decided this area was safe, which is not that surprising considering how remote it is.


Wakhan Corridor is still Kabul FIR, so someone has to decide to give them clearance.

Those KC-130Js flying around? They can refuel things like MH-47s. Look for them to act as interim tankers on the way out, taking gas from the herks, landing and acting as forward refueling points.

Okay, thank you. Didn’t know that.

UA802 DEL-EWR about to enter Afgan air space according to fr24 - https://www.flightradar24.com/UAL802/28cea83e . Let's see if they do a last minute turn towards the north. HiFly ISM-BHX on the other hand clearly turning south to avoid Afgan air space.

B-52s and AC-130s would be CAS. Plus any fastmovers we can’t see that are CAP/CAS. B52 can obviously loiter a long a** time without eating fuel from a KC-xx(x), plus they have an eye in the sky for ISR defensive scans.

KCs are probably for fastmovers and Helo’s. C17s should be able to tanker in their own fuel. Caveat is C17 load with fuel. 800 pax at 200lbs is 160,000lbs. Pretty sure a C17 is rated for 2,400nm range at 165k lbs payload. Should be more than enough to get to UAE/Kuwait or wherever they go.

I don’t think we have seen any evidence of KCs landing to FARP aircraft on the ground have we?

A royal Netherlands air force transport is also headed for Kabul. It has not landed at Kabul yet, because local authorities are prioritising planes carrying reinforcements to secure the airport.

It has not been announced if the plane is a Hercules, KDC-10 or A330. However, a RNLAF Hercules has been seen in Jordan, so that might be the flight.

Pinged the same to an ANG friend who has flown extensively in the region.

Only in very controlled areas where overflight requires coordination with civilian ATC and limited military ATC capabilities. Also in some areas along the gulf to avoid misidentification you will see areas where military crews will turn on standard transponders for short periods of time in specific location spans.

I believe UAE requires standard transponders for most military operations by foreign governments.

its pretty common in many regions to requre it and generally when in low risk areas its a pia to turn them off then on again and not all that effective that if not in a hot zone their usually left on

This may sound like a really dumb question but why would the CIA be going INTO Afghanistan now...Just to remove sensitive equipment or extract high value government workers etc ?

I have been following this plane for a bit more than a year now. It is always in the busy spots if it isn't practicing around the panhandle of Florida. It spends a lot of time in Jordan.

Radar coverage isn't great , they are back east/southeast of Mazar-i-Sharif - I'm speculating they are going to Uzbekistan - Termez or Qarshi

Anyone wanna bet the 3 Kodiaks are going to try for Termez?


And just like that, the three KODI's disappeared from FR24 on my end. If I was a betting man, I'd say Termez as well - but now I'm curious as to their status. Anyone have any insight that I may not?


Radar coverage isn't great , they are back east/southeast of Mazar-i-Sharif - I'm speculating they are going to Uzbekistan - Termez or Qarshi

My lack of patience got the best of my, thank you friend. In any event, I'm gonna guess Termez. Would be curious to find out what's aboard.
