Afghan Black Hawk

Afghan Mi-17 pilots take a first look at the cockpit of an Afghan Air Force UH-60 Black Hawk helicopter Oct. 2, 2017, at Kandahar Airfield, Afghanistan. The UH-60 is part of the AAF modernization program and the latest addition to its growing fleet. Mi-17 pilots are the first to train on the new weapons system and are expected to jump-start the new platform, which will eventually replace the Mi-17. (U.S. Air Force photo by Staff Sgt.
