King Amanullah, Afghanistan’s reforming pro-Western ruler, gets a good look around Croydon Airport in this film, which shows the monarch inspecting buildings and airplanes, including one with folding wings that’s stored in a portable hanger. He also received some mail, written in Persian, dropped by parachute, and noses around a control tower. The king looks interested throughout, and is accompanied by a number of local dignitaries.
A 26-minute video showing the Friendship Bridge, trains, boats and other facilities at Hairatan, published by MITRATV on 25 November 2015. It’s not in English, so I don’t know what it says.
“”Ҳайратон” кўприги Афғонистонга неча миллион фойда келтирмоқда?” is a BBC Uzbek video about rail freight at Hayratan on the border with Uzbekistan, which was published on 30 November 2017. I don’t speak Uzbek so I have no idea what the commentary says, but there is lots of footage of the railway.
An undated AP video of the Uzbek end of the Friendship Bridge. “Kharitom” is another variant spelling of Hairaton, Hayratan etc to add to the list…
I’ve no idea what this Mitranews report is about, but there are trains at 0:30 and 2:40.
