    Last time I saw the AAF in 'action', and that's not two years ago, they were charging passengers (e.g. the ANA) cash to fly. Even the Generals paid for their seats, and everyone accepted it. It's a great nation for backhanders and bribery, that's for sure :)

    Oh, and ISAF forces could not fly on AAF - too risky.
