AmritsarAmritsar Airport

TRIP TO KABUL FROM AMRITSAR TO KABUL – FWC

Finally, on October 1st , after a five (5) day delay, the Indian Airlines plane is ready for its early morning departure to Kabul.  On October the 1st FWC finally leaves Amritsar, India bound for Kabul, Afghanistan on Indian Airlines.   As the plane approaches Kabul the pilot is informed that he cannot land in Kabul before the Aeroflot plane carrying Russian diplomat Voroshiloff, who is on a state visit to Afghanistan, lands.  The Russian plane is not expected to land before 12:00 noon, the  pilot is told, so the Indian Airlines plane cannot land in Kabul in the AM.  Fuel is an issue.  The situation is further complicated by the fact that Indian Airlines can over-fly Pakistan on flights between India and Afghanistan, but cannot land at any Pakistani airports.  But, no one knows whether the plane has a right to re-enter Pakistan’s airspace     without actually landing in Kabul.  Eventually instructions from Indian Airlines managers in New Delhi, India dictate the obvious, the flight must return to Amritsar.  Pakistan does not object (owing probably to an imminent coup which would be jeopardized by an international air incident) and will allow the plane to return to Kabul from the requisite early afternoon departure from Amritsar.

About 3:00 PM in the afternoon the Indian Airlines DC-3 finally arrives in the air above the Kabul Airport and proceeds to make the customary three low passes over the dirt runway to scare the various wandering and grazing donkeys and camels from the approach path and off the landing field.  At 3:30 PM FWC actually does land in Kabul, Afghanistan.  As he walks down the steps of the one set of passenger steps available in Kabul he is met by Snyder, Swanson, McGuire, and Sharunk of the United States Operations Mission (USOM) in Afghanistan.  Despite aircraft mechanical failures, heavy winds, torrential rains, intestinal distress, Russian diplomats and Afghan diplomacy, international air protocols, pending coups, wayward donkeys, nomadic camels, and windblown dirt runways; FWC has arrived in Kabul, Afghanistan.

—————————————————————————————————————————————————————— FWC arrives in Kabul, Afghanistan at 3:30 PM..  Receives letter dated September 27th / 1958 from M.E. Carter of the Personnel Office.  There is a dial telephone in the Porch off the Staff House Lounge.  FWC is assigned to VIP quarters in the USOM Staff House.
