Kabul Conference

Kabul Conference from Ramblings from a Painter by Storypainter -
A couple of days ago, two of us went up to Kabul for a conference, along with several military staff guys. We'd asked for a flight in the afternoon, so we could get some work done here, then fly up, settle in, and attend the conference the next day. Nope. Military Air is a logic unto themselves. Instead of an afternoon flight, we had to show up at 4:30 am for a 6:30 am flight. Ugh! I like my beauty rest, but ya gotta do what ya gotta do. Let me tell you, a flight line at 6 am on a cold winter morning, with a stiff wind blowing across the field, is no fun. But our flight left more or less on time and the plane warmed up quickly. We flew in a C-27, which is a new addition to our inventory and a nice little cargo plane. Unlike the bigger C-130, there's plenty of room for passengers to stretch their legs.
