Afghan pilots fleeing the Taliban to Tajikistan begin transfer to the United States

More than 140 Afghan air force pilots and personnel flew out of Tajikistan on a U.S. chartered plane, after months of detention following their escape from Afghanistan over the summer, officials said Wednesday.

Hundreds of Afghan pilots even flew in helicopters and planes to safety in the Central Asian neighboring countries in August when the Taliban overran Afghanistan and overthrew the government in Kabul.
