Bashura Kandahar is approximately 3, feet mean sea level MSL and can be characterized as high desert. During the winter months at Kandahar, our aircraft performed well. While en route to Khowst, we crossed a snow-covered mountain at 11, MSL. We had already conducted numerous missions to include Operation Anaconda. During the deployment, we were exposed to a wide range of temperatures, a variety of flight environments, and altitude extremes that we had never operated in before. Our first mission took us from Kandahar to Bagram Airbase to refuel and then on to the eastern city of Khowst.
