Afghan Pilots Who Fled Taliban to Tajikistan Begin Transfer to U.S.

More than 140 Afghan Air Force pilots and personnel flew out of Tajikistan on a U.S.-chartered flight, after months of detention following their escape from Afghanistan over the summer, officials said Wednesday.

Hundreds of Afghan pilots flew themselves in helicopters and airplanes to safety in neighboring Central Asian countries in August, when the Taliban overran Afghanistan and toppled the government in Kabul.
