The Afghan air force has received its first Blackhawk helicopters from the US, in the latest step towards modernising its fleet. Afghanistan still relies heavily on US airpower, but Afghans are beginning to carry out some operations themselves. The new hardware arrives today, but it will take months before the aircraft can be used, and years before the air force can operate entirely on its own.

Al Jazeera’s Jennifer Glasse reports from Kandahar.
