Mi-17s Bound For Ukraine, Possibly Spotted in Arizona


Sources at the Davis-Monthan AFB in Arizona have reported that several Mi-17s, originally slotted for sale to the Afghanistan National Army before the dramatic collapse of the American-supported government there in the Fall of 2021, were being pulled out of storage today.

Earlier this week, many media platforms reported American President Biden’s announcement of an 800M USD arms transfer to Ukraine as the Russian Federation begins its assault to secure the Eastern Donbas region.


These Mi-17s will undoubtedly serve the beleaguered Ukrainian Air Force which has lost probably more than 50% of its operational airframes, although in recent days has been reinforced by the delivery of key parts from an unnamed NATO country, allowing several Ukrainian fighters to be restored to fully operational.


The sources confirmed there are several airframes in the massive boneyard where the United States maintains its strategic reserve of aircraft, missiles, and their components. The 309th Aerospace Maintenance and Regeneration Group (309th AMARG), often called The Boneyard, is a United States Air Force aircraft and missile storage and maintenance facility in Tucson, Arizona, located on Davis–Monthan Air Force Base.
