In this video by U.S. Army Staff Sgt. Charles Crail, watch a contractor-flown Caribou supply plane — flying low among the mountains — drop pallets on a remote outpost in Paktika province. At the end, listen to the soldier praise the pilots.

    Repairing trains is way to costly. This seems logistically the way in remote areas.

    The Caribou is a great plane. There was some majick at DeHavilland to produce such fantastic bush planes.

    I can only guess that the contractor was Australian as they are the only ones who still fly it militarily.
