SyAAF Various III

Iranian Il-76 spotted just before landing in Hama AFB sometimes earlier this year.

Wonderful and HD shot for "the inside" of Hama AFB, shows a column of at least nine Mi-8's; To the right side, a two-seat MiG-23UB often nonoperational since not a single one was spotted flying or taxiing in this AFB.

Close shot for the Polish made agricultural PZL Dromedar, the location is unidentified, it carries the serial YK-AMD written in black under the wing.

In the same place, another unrecognized propeller which was first seen flying over Al Atareb in Aleppo province on 13 March 2012 in this VIDEO; It might be an aerial photography aircraft.

Very clear shot of the only survivor SyAAF Il-28 in Aleppo IAP (Neyrab AB). 

Another shot from front shows scrapped frames of some Mi helicopters.

Also another photo for the same, which shows the fuselage of a SyAAF Metero scrapped infront of the Beagle.

    1. Thx for your detailed addition !!

  3. it´s not a PZL Dromedar, it´s a cessna ag wagon ;)

  4. YK-AMD is NOT a PZL, it is a CeA188B Ag Wagon. I have 13 delivered but their role is unclear (crop spraying or "secondary task" chemical warfare?).
    Cheers and keep up the great work, www.scramble.nl

    1. Scramble, Sociedad, Thanks for your comments, May I ask here for how could you define them as Cessna? for your info, once (talking about 20 years ago) I used to see a Yellowish Orange agriculture aircraft exactly as this one (Ce or PZL) stationed sometimes in Mennekh also in Kweres AFB's, Then, there might be 2 kinds of this agriculture (crop spraying) aircraft delivered to Syria.

      I never could approach that aircraft due to its extreme and in-bearable smell !!!!

  5. This picture shows perfectly well that it is a Ce188: http://images3.jetphotos.net/img/1/1/1/2/54992_1257521211.jpg
    I have no records of PZL aircraft in Syria.
