This photo is not recent from Afghanistan and not ben done by Indian Air Force. It is 8 years old photo from Philippines, when US Air force evacuated people to save them from a Typhoon.
The first thing we did was to zoom the photo and look closely.
- Not even a single person was wearing the clothes worn in Afghanistan.
- The faces looked East Asian and not west.
On reverse image search we found this viral image to be from Philippines, Year 2013
More than 670 Tacloban residents sit on board a C-17 Globemaster III before being evacuated to Manila following Super Typhoon Haiyan, which hit the Philippines Nov. 17, 2013. The C-17 is deployed from the 535th Airlift Squadron at Joint Base Pearl Harbor-Hickam, Hawaii, to Clark Air Base in the Philippines in support of Operation Damayan, a humanitarian assistance and disaster relief effort. In addition to the safe transport of the passengers, the Hickam based crew also successfully delivered more than 100, 000 pounds of cargo. (U.S. Air Force Photo/Staff Sgt. Ramon Brockington) – Source

Airlifting 670 people had been a record which probably has been broken today by flying 800 from Kabul today.
