Delta 763 heading back to Frankfurt Hahn from DWC.

Camber (CMB) is typically a DoD Charter.


What an odd track too. They are currently over southern Egypt at about the "border" of very large gap of no aviation at all to the West until you hit basically Morocco. I presume they will turn north towards Frankfurt soon, but still, seems like a very strange route to take.

Having flown that trip and others similar the route is not the norm but not unusual either.

Very common routing for USMIL or contract flights, I’ve done both military and civilian when unable to overfly Iraq or Syria. Nowhere near Morocco, exit HECC at TANSA. Often go a bit further north over Wejh.

Any reason C-5’s aren’t going into KBL? Elevation? Constraints on the ground?

No, the M-models can depart at max structural weights. Possibly constraints on the ground, if using the troop compartment, only 73 seats, but floor load people and it could set a record. That was done in New Orleans. None are deployed to Al Udeid AB, however like the squadron of Buddhas chopped to CENTCOM.

I’d say it has more to do with the C-5’s 6.9% MC rate and the 69% chance it’s going to break in Kabul. Exaggerating…kind of.

Looks like that Cessna did a max rate climb all the way to FL350 before pitching over and increasing speed. I’m not familiar with this model so maybe it’s common (certainly is common to trade speed for climb rate on turbo props)

The French organized a risky convoy from their -officially closed- embassy in the Green zone to the airport, some 5km away, all through Taliban controlled territory.

Must have been scary, even though they were escorted by French special forces.

A first BAF C-130 is just airborne from KBL, bound for ISB; a second C-130 will shortly join it

In ISB a Airbus A400 of the BAF is waiting their passengers to fly them back to BRU.

More evacuation flights between ISB and KBL on C-130 are planned over the next few days, with passengers then being transfered onto a total of 2 charter flights operated by Air Belgium on Airbus A340.

In total Belgium is aiming at evacuating close to 500 people with (dual) Belgian nationality as well as a group of Afghans who have worked for the Belgian Army during its NATO mission there.

https://twitter.com/GeorgesGilkinet/sta ... 07168?s=20

Some more practical information about the evacuation:
those who are invited on these flights got a text message with specific information on how to make it to the airport via an unspecified secured way and were asked to bring food for 48hrs, proof of ID, a fully charged mobile phone and 1 small piece of hand luggage with them.

A official update on the US air bridge: https://twitter.com/W7VOA/status/1428673495286824966

Bullet points:
16 C-17 flights on Aug 19 alone, with 3000 passengers, of which 350 were US citizens, the rest Afghans

In the same time period, US military facilitated departure of 11 charter flights (My note: not sure exactly what this means), and those passengers are not included in the above totals.

C-5 A/B reliability was horrible, but the Ms were a good improvement in reliability, at first. I don’t know any Buddha bubbas but it’s no great shakes, either. I went a year or two without a trip maintenance delayed, stay away from AD bases, have sharp engineers and go. At McChord, the port and duty loads managed to break a bunch of shear pins in aft ramp. Eng goes over to -141 maintenance, snags a bunch of pins and in they got. I asked if they were okay. “We’re closing the ramp and not opening it again, home”. If you’re on the ground in Kabul, you’re leaving, period, short of any engine not starting. We ran those rules at Ar’ar in 2003. We don’t train three-engine take-offs. Despite the record, the C-5 has huge redundancies and can go with lots broke. Ask me how I know.

Yes, C-5s do clog up the MOG, but a good crew, without a Port to worry about turn quick. Always amazed me it took 3-4 hours to turn KDOV, but 2 hours from cold plane at an ANG base lifting or dropping off a fighter unit.

The military is running KBL, so they “facilitate”— load, manifest, fuel or servicing, marshall, etc.

I'm also sure the surge to 4500 US troops at the airport is requiring a lot of additional food and supplies, plus evacuees on airport grounds.

As a Canadian I was surprised to see no mention of any CAF C-17, A-310 or C-130 arrivals in Kabul on this thread.
I just read in the news however that a C-17 evacuated 188 people yesterday and that another should have arrived by now.

It was also stated that a contingent of troops (no number released) were flown into Kabul via another NATO member aircraft a few days ago.
This was likely a USAF aircraft.

Media in Canada is saying around 1,000 have already been evacuated but very little detail. Sounds like embassy staff arrive in Ottawa several days ago on a Air Senegal charter and a HiFly charter into Toronto. They appear to be very quit on any details. CBC is reporting two Canadian C-17 allocated to evacuations.

I've seen journalists say French authorities avoid saying how many people we plan to "rescue", I'm starting to understand why. Canada and the UK have announced they will take 20000 people each, but if you read the small print, it just means 20000 people will get refugee status if they make it to these countries. How they will make it there is another story entirely...

From my understanding France uses A400M(s) between Kabul and Qatar where there is a French military base, then A330 MRTT(s) onwards to Paris, can you confirm ? I've seen an MRTT on the news with people disembarking from a jetway, first time I've seen that.

Not a moment too soon. News reports today indicate flights from Kabul were suspended because the facility in Qatar was at capacity.

Apparently a RAAF C130 is shuttling between Kabul & a base in the UAE. First lot of Evacuees have already arrived back in Perth on a charter flight.

Interesting side effect of all this, the Australian government apparently hasn’t raised the inbound arrival quarantine capacity and airlines are now in the process of canceling aussie expats flights from around the world because there is allegedly no capacity for them despite all the Afghan returnees quarantining in Perth which hasn’t had any other international arrivals.

Got a bit excited finally seeing RAAF airborne instead of after the event photos, both BONDI50 and 51 were RAAF C17s.
