Very nice, a Zambian Hongdu L-15AFT! Was there myself 3 years ago and saw them in the distance.
Nice shot of a rare bird :clap:

Did that land using runway 10 and then turn off to backtrack to the air force hangers? Any sign of the Harbin Z-9 helo's or the K-8 Karakorum's? Was the HS748 still there?

They were all there in addition to the MA60s, Do28, Harbin Y-12, Mi-17, Bell 205 which were all active while I was there. I think the Hs748s are parked as i've not seen them move in a while. Most traffic lands on runway 10 which is the prevailing runway so aircraft recovering to the military ramp taxi down the Delta taxiway before crossing the runway at Golf.

Just posted the same thing on another thread. There are some fantastic photos throughout this forum generally, but its the posts like this with the rarely seen / reported or less common types that I love. Thanks for posting.
