    I think you're right Etienne.

    To many people to less aircraft. What we want is more aircraft and less people.

    But only in flight pictures would be nearly impossible. I can live with ground and even with crash pictures as long it is recognisable.

      I've been taking lots of lesser-known African AFs mostly from SNS like facebook.

      Many of them are not pilots, but ground crews like mechanics, base sentries.

      Therefore, You guys need to expect anything more than from their daily routine life.

      They're not a professional military aviation photographer who has to pay for base tour, and even risking their life by showing off their exotic fighter jets and helicopters without going through any strict censorship.

      No more complaints.. Gents!! I'm doing my best to exceed your expectation.

      I haven't paid a single penny so far for spreading my daily finds on this wonderful thread.

        Should we start a separate thread called Small Air Forces (photos with people allowed here)? I'm just being sarcastic.

        Imagine somebody found a photo of an aircraft that trully belongs here - for example Burkinabe Mi-4 - and didnt post it because he was afraid that it could be against the rules. This is not what we want!

        I prefer clear, hi-res photos as everyone else does. No doubt about it. But I don't want to lose an exotic aircraft just because there are some people around it. The essence of this thread are exotic, small air forces, not great photos. Everyone who ever tried to uncover pictures of lesser-known, especially third-world air forces knows how hard and time consuming it could be. If (and it is a big IF) you find something new at all, it is a success.

        So, enjoy this Afghan jet! The pic proves that Afghan Govt. AF (i.e. Massoud's forces) operated at least one Su-17 from Jalalabad airfiled in 1994.

          We'd better invite a group of professional military aviation photographers here instead.

          If someone would hate to see people loitering around the exotic African military fighter jets or helicopters.

          It's an obligation or something like that.. and necessary since that's a part of their military job.

          Starsign. You're still obssesed with going after Afghan warlord's AF stuffs?

          You're sick.. Man. ha ha ha.... Nice pic !!

          I will make your face slavering with my kisses if you could come up with any color pics of Royal Afghan AF Yak-11 circa 60.

          Just like stratosaurus did a few months ago. He brought to here an outstanding color pic as seen from a departing Boeing 707 airliner.

          That was showing off a row of Royal Afghan AF silver MiG-17F Frescos and what believed to be a Yak-11 at the extreme left end.
