Mi-17s returned to mission ready after mortar damage

The Afghan Air Force sheet metal repairs commander explains what repairs were required to ensure that the Mi-17 behind him could return to an operational status at Kandahar Airfield, Afghanistan, May 7, 2018. The aircraft was one of six Mi-17s to have been damaged by enemy attacks, but after extensive sheet metal repairs, the aircraft are all continuing operational missions. (U.S. Air Force photo/1st Lt.
