Chorog Airfield with Antonov AN 28

On the way past Khorog airfield to the Afghan-Tajik weekly market at the border bridge between Tem and Demogan (Afghanistan). The view of the landed Antonov aircraft from Dushanbe is blocked by a lattice fence. The visual flight with the Antonov through the 5,000-metre-high rocky embrasures off Khorog is considered a delicate flight manoeuvre. The flights are also weather-dependent and irregular.
