Re: B733 ZS-TGB on contract for Royal Jordanian

I met this Iraq Air-force C130 Captain in our hotel. He had some great flying stories including being shot twice in Baghdad, once on approach and once on departure! Really cool guy. He was on the way to the USA for training. http://gallery.internationalflyerz.co.za/RoyalJordanian/RJordanian2017_101....
