Multiple individuals aboard one of the evacuation flights leaving Kabul, Afghanistan , “intended” on hijacking the plane, the Air Force revealed.

Officials received an intelligence tip that five people on board one of the commercial airline flights “intended to hijack the aircraft,” the Air Force said in a statement on Tuesday providing new information regarding the chaotic evacuation efforts in August.

The article goes on to state the following:

“Our team worked to get them clear of the NATO ramp, relocated to the north side away from friendly forces, then ultimately onto the south side where the situation was handled,” Lt. Col. Brian Desautels, 71st Rescue Squadron and Personnel Recovery Task Force commander, said.


The statement did not include any details regarding the date of the incident or how it was resolved.

The report also included the viral video that was filmed in August during the chaotic evacuation, showing Afghans chasing and holding onto a US military plane as it took off down the runway.

“Not caught on video and less than a minute later, both HC-130J Combat King II took off on a sliver of remaining runway. With seconds to spare, they were airborne skimming just 10 feet above the crowd,” the Air Force said. “I was able to contact the CFACC (Combined Forces Air Component Commander) and received authorization to take off from the taxiway, if needed,” Desautels added. “The strategic message: We would have a runway.”

The report noted that The Department of the Air Force Office of Special Investigations is currently investigating the matter.

  1. They almost hijacked it till they realized they could just get a free ride straight into the US and not even have to ask for it. Then our government repeated this process over and over and over again. They still are and will continue too. We are funding the invasion of our own country by our own government. Their moto should be “A wall won’t stop us, neither will consent”.
