    Tribal leaders from North Waziristan meet with Pakistan Army officials in Miramshah to finalize on a peace deal between the Pakistani Taliban and the Pakistan government. The ceasefire deal would stop the fighting, allow residents to return, and would cease cross-border attacks into Afghanistan. The peace deal ended in a disaster as raids increased. The peace deal broke apart after less than a year (2007).

    Can anyone ID the smaller twin engine plane next to the burnt out P-3C?

    And the female pilot looks like shes about to start a training flight on the FT-7, and not returning from a bombing mission of any sort, as is clearly indicated by the "Remove Before Flight" sign in front of her in the cockpit ...
