Hi

A number of military aircraft seen on departure from Colombo

SMH-4421, SMH-4422 Mil-17 plus a number of others which the video from my phone can't be sure about.

If interested, here's the view out of the window during the takeoff https://youtu.be/gUhpOPHDFXQ

Well, some bad luck for you there. You saw one C-130, they have two. You saw three An-32s, they have four. :-(
But at least you got two Hips, which is nice of course! And not too many people have those.
Cheers,
