Road trip through Kabul

There were three ways of getting from Kabul to/from Bagram Air Base: airplane, helicopter or by road. Travelling the 30 miles took at least 90 minutes and had to be done by armoured vehicled convoy. This trip was in British SNATCH vehicles, and this video was taken through the one window in the passenger compartment.

95% of the civilian vehicles in Afghanistan are Toyotas. White Toyotas. Yellow and white ones are taxis.

I was in the lead vehicle, so you can sometimes see the chase vehicle in the video.

Great lads, the Brits- diligent, well-trained professionals. They got me home safe everytime.
