          If you are talking about the Morane Saulnier MS-733 "Alcyon" on the ground, the picture is from the international air show at Le Bourget in 1955.

            This is a photoshop FAKE???
            ...

            He was my North, my South, my East and West,
            My working week and my Sunday rest,
            My noon, my midnight, my talk, my song;
            I thought that love would last forever; I was wrong.

            The stars are not wanted now; put out every one:
            Pack up the moon and dismantle the sun;
            Pour away the ocean and sweep up the woods:
            For nothing now can ever come to any good.

                    The AF of Bangladesh lost two of its Yak-130 (allegedly 15103 & 15105) after a mid-air collision.

                          Afghanistan received four Blackhawks in September, with more apparently on the way.

                            But why (Afghan UH-60s)? Doesn't the Mi-8/17 perform better in the conditions around Afghanistan? Could it be that this is the U.S. DoD patronizing the U.S. defense establishment for a little gravy? I'm sure the Taliban will be stoked when they get their hands on them.
