Out of the Darkness
On 10 November 2014, a 30 Squadron crew departed Kabul International Airfield in support of Operation HERRICK for the last time, having already completed Operation FLATOUT ; the extraction of British and US Forces from Camp Bastion. A few days later on 13 November 2014, the UK’s last two permanently deployed C-130s returned home with 30 Squadron crewing one of the aircraft, ending 12 years of deployed operations in Afghanistan.
