Kabul: There was silence at Kabul International Airport on Thursday night as Kam Air’s much-delayed flight from Delhi disgorged its passengers, unloaded its huge cargo and crawled to the hangar. Passengers quickly made their way to the car park on the other side of the airport, the men leading the women – some neatly dressed in black, others more carefree of the shimmering sequin patterns on their green burka sleeves – past the three young Taliban guards at the passenger entrance, in front of the white and black flag of the Islamic Emirate waving in the wind, in front of the “I love Afghanistan” sign in front of the main terminal.

The airport no longer bears the names of two distinguished Afghan leaders – Ahmad Shah Massoud – the Tajik leader, whose brooding portrait reminded everyone of his assassination two days before the Taliban bombed America on September 11, 2001 – and Hamid Karzai – the Pashtun leader, who refused to leave Kabul with his wife and three daughters on August 15 last year, when the Taliban entered the capital without firing a shot.

The airport appears to be a ghost version of itself, hosting a few flights and even fewer people.

The silence extends into the city.

Earlier in the evening, an Islamic State suicide squad burst into a seminary and killed a key Taliban ideologue, Rahimullah Ansari.

The Taliban, to be sure, are nervous – it’s their first anniversary week and they don’t want extremist extremist groups spoiling the party. Just days ago, the Americans brought Afghanistan back to the headlines, when they snatched al-Qaeda’s top leader Ayman al-Zawahiri from a balcony in the heart of Kabul, and killed him with a Hellfire missile launched from a drone. Today, there are enough Taliban with enough weapons at this crossing to prevent pesky journalists from taking pictures, to build up a small arsenal.

Shahr-e-Naw, literally, the New Town, was once a cauldron of noise and activity, the streets choked with cars, the sidewalks buzzing with people of all ages, shapes and sizes. It was like a fashion show – the women of Kabuli strutting around in their tent-like outer garment known as ‘chadaree’ in colors anything but black, basking in the confidence of 20 years of upbringing – while fruit sellers, currency converters and restaurants were doing booming business thanks to generous Western aid.

But this Kabul seems to have withdrawn into itself. An off-season shower that has everyone home running adds to the feeling that something is missing. A young boy is still petting his pet parrot, Toti, in a shoe store as he waits for the rain to clear.

Further down the street, Chara-i-Ansari, or Chowk Ansari, Aimuddin’s shop still sells the best vanilla ice cream in all of South Asia, while his brawny colleague grinds ingredients into an aluminum ‘degree‘ which is encrusted in ice cubes.

“Happy India has opened an embassy in Kabul”

The feeling of incompleteness had started at the airport itself – the airport that has no particular name.

As we waited for our luggage on one of the two carousels, it was comforting to find that the air conditioning was working well. We ask one of the porters the cause of the baggage delay, and he turns around and says, “It’s because the cargo from Delhi brought ‘paan.’

Peacock? Yes, paan (betel nut). He adds, “Like, khai-ke paan Banaraswallah”, a line from an old and much-loved amitabh Bachhan.

According to this porter, the cargo from Delhi, along with medicines and clothes and so on, also includes betel nut. Nobody knows if that’s true, but he’s now launched into “Hum toh thehre pardesi”, another Hindi movie song of an unknown vintage.

Baggage shows no signs of apparition.

A slender young girl in nicely coordinated trousers and a long tunic stands nearby, her non-resident Afghan look accentuated by an Australian accent. Afghanistan has changed so much. A sister left, evacuated, when the Taliban arrived in Kabul last year, and is now in the United States. Another sister, recently married, refuses to leave the house. “They broke our hearts. The Taliban broke our hearts,” she said.

Meanwhile, the three young Taliban guards at the passenger entrance inside the airport, aged 21, 22 and 28 – the older man once worked with the much-vilified former president, the security of Ashraf Ghani – do not hesitate to speak about Hindustan.

The Taliban flag |  Photo: Jyoti Malhotra |  The footprint

Hindustan is an old friend. We would like to restart communication with Hindustan. Pakistan and Iran are territorial neighbors and India is a bit far away, but we will not allow our soil to be used by foreign countries against India, one said.

Back in Shahr-e-Naw, the Taliban and their mandate dominate the conversation.

Aimuddin is the most eloquent. “The Americans destroyed the country. The Taliban are good for Afghanistan.

Another young man in a burger restaurant says in perfect English: “You can’t imagine what the Taliban can do to people. A middle-aged Afghan-American, with several properties in the city, insists: “Afghanistan must be run by Afghans. Not by strangers.

Fazal Ahmad, a middle-aged Taliban gentleman from Kandahar, with four daughters – two working as doctors and the other two students – escapes the rain at a store that sells Chinese-made sweets and birthday party supplies. He has traveled to India four times, twice for medical treatment.

“There is no need to be afraid of the Taliban. You can go wherever you want. We are happy that India has opened a “safarat”, an embassy, ​​in Kabul. Right now it’s small, it should be expanded, so Afghans can get visas to travel and Indians can come here,” he says.

The rain has calmed down. The Taliban leader returns home. The shopkeeper deals with a couple of latecomers. Kabul shuts down for the night, pushing its unresolved issues to another day.

MAJOR US AIRPORTS You’ve been on a building frenzy lately, with so many “pardon our appearance” signs in terminals, you might feel compelled to pack a headset. Now that some of the biggest expansion projects are winding down, aviators are realizing that a good pair of track shoes could also come in handy. Depending on where your departing flight is parked, in some terminals the hike to reach it can be over a mile. When Salt Lake City International Airport revealed its stunning new terminal in 2020, the buzz was about the bright, art-filled spaces and, less stellar, the long walk to the doors. Some flyers took Twitter to complain; one user said it was like “having to train for a 5K just to get to my doorstep.” For the record, the longest boardwalk in SLC is about 2/3 of a mile, and more moving walkways are in the works. Below, find other US airports notable for their marathons.

Dallas-Fort Worth International Airport

Like its home country, DFW celebrates the great outdoors. The walk from the entrance via Terminal D to Terminal B is one of the longest airport hikes in the United States, clocking in at 2.16 miles. When athletic shoe company Kuru Footwear polled 1,000 customers on the most notorious airport marathons, DFW topped the list, although an airport tram offers a shortcut.

MARQUETTE — A request to approve a building administration agreement that would cost Marquette County $150,007 was presented at the Marquette County Board of Commissioners meeting on Tuesday.

Sawyer Operations Manager Duane DuRay presented information regarding the proposed project agreement between Marquette County and Mead and Hunt. The deal would fund a fire suppression system to be installed in Hangar 664 at KI Sawyer International Airport.

According to Duray, the cost totals $274,161 and is included in an Air Force military program grant. In the opinion of CS Engineering Inc., these are reasonable fees for the scope of work and would range between $389,410 and $475,946. The total cost of the fire suppression project is estimated at $3,134,000. It would be a 90/5/5 split between federal, state and local governments, bringing the county’s share to $150,007. This project would help further utilize the Military Airport Program grant that was requested in 2018 and will cover 90% of the project cost. The project will be the subject of a future application for a passenger installation fee aimed at obtaining reimbursement of the local share paid. If the Federal Aviation Administration awards the grant, the county will proceed. The motion passed 6-0.

In additional motions, the board:

≤ Has had its second quarterly budget amendment. Highlights of the general fund include several staff changes, a guest judge helping to deal with the backlog of cases, and training for the Marquette County Sheriff’s Office, District Attorney’s Offices and Courts. The judge’s visit is funded by $9,000 from the American Rescue Plan Act.

≤ ARPA funding will also be used to train staff in the Sheriff’s, District Attorney’s and Court’s offices to specifically strengthen communication and understanding between departments.

≤ The search and rescue fund has been increased to pay for a new truck and the training centre. A motion to consider the budget amendment was approved 6-0.

≤ Stephanie Birch received a certificate from the Board of County Commissioners honoring her for her years of service and retirement. She began her career in Marquette County in 1997 as an accountant in the development department of KI Sawyer. After several other positions, she was appointed Staff Payroll Specialist, a position she held for 12 years.

“I would just like to say that it has been one of my greatest blessings,” said Birch. “And I’m just glad I had the opportunity.”

≤ The County Board of Commissioners reviewed its July 15-28 spending, which totaled $1,251,980.10. Bi-weekly payroll for the period ending July 23 was $736,093.79 and electronic payments and cashier’s checks for the period totaled $92,380.69. The motion to pay the bills as presented was carried 6-0.

≤ The Veterans Affairs site in Ishpeming submitted a memo asking to rename their office space. The space would be renamed after Colonel George T. LaBlonde II in recognition of his years of service and instrumental work in the community. The motion passed 6-0.

≤ A bid was placed for a Chevy Silverado for a total of $37,292.23. The vehicle, from Fox Marquette, is purchased for the facilities department. The truck will be available after six months. The motion was approved 6-0.

≤ A conditional agreement for the sale and purchase of undeveloped land by Superior Extrusion Inc. passed 6-0. The building should be in place and operational before the end of December.

Farnborough Airport has worked closely with McLaughlin & Harvey and Gebler Tooth to create a plan that will increase hangar space by over 70%, while complementing the airport’s existing award-winning facilities. The grand project was conceived in response to the growing demand for premium hangar space with a design that accommodates the growing presence of the next generation of business jets.

The new hangar will be rated by BREEAM, the world’s leading sustainability rating method for infrastructure and buildings, and is expected to achieve some of the highest environmental standards. One of the signature features of Domus III will be the translucent automated doors, which will run the full length of the building, maximizing natural light inside the hangar and reducing the use of lighting. The large, unhindered access provided by the door design will improve aircraft handling and help mitigate unnecessary emissions from aircraft handling activities. The construction plan will also ensure that construction will not impact day-to-day operations at the airport.

Simon Geere, CEO of Farnborough Airport, said: “We are pleased to announce that we have appointed McLaughlin & Harvey and Gebler Tooth for the development of Domus III, which will further enhance our facilities and operational infrastructure. We want to be recognized as a global showcase for airport sustainability and the new hangar has been meticulously designed with this in mind. The investment will also provide a substantial boost to jobs and economic growth in the region, while continuing our journey of providing best-in-class facilities to our customers at the premier business aviation airport in the region. ‘Europe.

David Tooth, Founding Director of GeblerTooth, said: “We are delighted to be involved in this important development at Farnborough Airport. Our team has worked closely with the airport and contractor teams so far to reach this milestone and we are delighted to see the project complete.”

The new hangar is part of a wider plan to continuously improve the customer experience at Farnborough Airport while setting the standard for sustainability in the industry. In June, Farnborough Airport committed to achieving some of the industry’s most ambitious environmental targets with the launch of its Net Zero Roadmap, setting a path to Net Zero for its controllable emissions by 2030 or earlier. . In 2018 Farnborough Airport became the first business airport to achieve carbon neutral status, last year made Sustainable Aviation Fuel (SAF) available to customers and earlier this month -ci, ran a successful promotion by offering SAF at the same price as Jet A1 fuel.

HARARE – Zimbabwe’s main airport is finally getting a radar system after taking delivery of the equipment as part of a $153 million upgrade.

Air traffic controllers at Robert Gabriel Mugabe International Airport in Harare were landing planes without radar systems.

Planes sometimes landed undetected, it was claimed. Last December, lawmaker and head of the parliamentary budget committee, Oscar Gorerino, called the lack of a radar system “dangerous in terms of safety”.

Airport surveillance radar systems are capable of reliably detecting and tracking aircraft at altitudes below 25,000 feet (7,620 meters) and within a radius of 40 to 60 nautical miles (75 to 110 km).

Radar is short for ‘Radio Detection and Ranging’. A radar system detects other aircraft or other objects and the speed and direction in which they are traveling by sending out a pulse of high frequency electromagnetic waves.

Air traffic controllers use the radar system to manage air traffic and help pilots land safely.

Finance Minister Mthuli Ncube told parliament last Thursday that Zimbabwe had spent $5.7 million on a radar system for Robert Gabriel Mugabe International Airport.

“The purchase of radar equipment has commenced following the payment of US$5.7 million under the US$6.1 million contract, with three of the five radars delivered during the period to the study and installation is underway,” said Ncube.

“The two exceptional radars are in transit from the suppliers, and the installation should be completed during the last half of the year.”

China Harbor Equipment Company won the radar upgrade contract.

The Export-Import Bank of China has loaned Zimbabwe US$153 million to upgrade the airport, including the radar system.

The loan, which has a repayment period of 20 years, including a seven-year grace period, has an annual interest rate of 2%.

Progress… Some of the radar equipment being installed at Robert Gabriel Mugabe International Airport

Ncube said the renovation of the airport is progressing well, with Zimbabwe having received $131.2 million of the $153 million loan.

The minister told MPs: ‘The expansion project remains on track with overall progress now estimated at 69 per cent. The main outstanding works include the refurbishment of the existing building and the purchase of the required equipment.

“Through the budget, an additional Z$514 million was funneled into the air traffic control communication system, while Z$411 million was spent on Air Zimbabwe legacy debts. “, added Ncube.

Titled “Oculus”, the sculpture, made of steel, aluminum and glass, will wave goodbye and wave goodbye to travelers entering the check-in gates on the west side of the airport where major renovations are currently underway.

Four 18-foot-tall wings in the shape of airplane wings hold aloft a circular window or opening created from dichroic glass treated with various metal oxides. The result will be many “constantly changing” colors producing a “dazzling array of light and color,” seen through the oculus, according to concept information provided by the sculptor.

All four wings will feature laser-cut images of Indiana’s heartland – its state bird, the cardinal; state flower, the peony; the state tree, the tulip; and but. The cutouts are meant to cast shadows on the surrounding sidewalks day or night. Other additional artwork will include cutouts of the state of Indiana, trees and apples, the word “welcome” in many languages ​​and music, Hinderman said.

Installation is expected to take place in the second quarter of next year and be included in the total cost of approximately $300,000, Scott Hinderman, executive director of Fort Wayne Airports.

Huether, who has numerous public and private commissions in his portfolio, has a large-scale work on display at Salt Lake City International Airport installed in 2013. Other public art installations can be seen in Chapel Hill, Austin , Houston, St. Petersburg, Florida, Glendale, Arizona, Germany and Japan. Huether came to the airport and toured Fort Wayne for inspiration.

One of his works of art is a massive aluminum yucca plant set up in the desert of Albuquerque, New Mexico. It lights up at night and was made from fuel tanks salvaged from F-16 military aircraft, according to Huether’s website.

Huether was chosen from a pool of 43 artists, some of them international, who expressed interest after a request for proposal was announced, Hinderman said. He set up a local committee of artists and art lovers to review the designs.

Rena Bradley, an FWAA board member who served on the art advisory committee, called Huether’s approach “smart. One of the things that appealed to me – it gave a visual nod to the airline industry,” she said. The airline’s wings were “smart, subtle and artistically done”.

The board tested the design on social media and received more than 200 combined likes on Facebook and Instagram, she said.

“The airport – when traveling to and from it is a major gateway into our community, sometimes the first and last thing (to see.) To have a work of art by a nationally recognized artist is a great way to make that first impression,” Bradley said.

Once Oculus is installed, it will create a sense of place and certainly directional. A circular concrete area currently exists just before a covered walkway to the airport check-in counters. At present, travelers departing during the day are treated to the sound of bustling construction. This will all come to an end as renovations on the west side are expected to be completed in the spring of 2023.

The airport sculpture follows the installation of a sculpture in 2018 at Promenade Park. ‘Convergence’, designed by Linda Howard of Florida, was chosen to represent the importance of the city’s three rivers.

“We made the decision to have this art sculpture exterior so it could be welcoming when people are coming from the parking lot or going from our terminal to the parking lot,” Hinderman said. There is another art gallery in the airport, but nothing of this magnitude.

“I hope people will have the opportunity to engage with art as they see it, when they arrive from the terminal building or from the terminal building to the parking lot. If they want to engage in it , they can kind of look at it and see how every fill in every wing reflects northeast Indiana.

This is yet another room where we can welcome people to Fort Wayne with an art sculpture, a little culture,” Hinderman said.
