Three Antonov aircraft repaired in Russia are brought back to SL

Three (03) Antonov-32 Heavy Lift Aircraft of the Sri Lanka Air Force returned home yesterday (11) to the No 02 Heavy Transport Squadron at Katunayake.
The 03 Aircraft were sent to Ukraine in August 2020 to undergo repairs and a life extension.
The Aircraft joined SLAF in 1995 and are the largest transport planes owned by the Sri Lanka Air Force.
The AN-32s are used mainly for passenger and cargo transportation at present.
During the humanitarian mission, the AN-32s were vital to transport wounded war heroes and civilians as well as to provide essential equipment to the war front.
