[June 28 2017]

56 Sri Lanka Air Force personnel left the country as the first replacement group of the SLAF Aviation Unit under the United Nations Mission in the Republic of South Sudan (UNMISS) on Tuesday (27th June), states Air Force media.

The group departed the country from the Bandaranaike International Airport where their family members and air force officials were present.
