The Living Daylights


At a Russian military airfield in Afghanistan, James Bond and Kara Milovy commandeer a Russian army UAZ jeep


Kara drives the UAZ jeep down the runway and into a cargo plane being piloted by Bond


After escaping their crashing plan, Bond drives himself and Kara to Karachi in the UAZ jeep


The narrative of The Living Daylights movie takes Bond to an airfield in Afghanistan – filmed on location in Ouarzazate, Morocco between September 1986 and February 1987 – where he drives a military utility vehicle which has registration plate 38-60 BW.

The car used in filming these scenes was a 1984 open-top Land Rover Ninety, modified by the movie studio's prop-shop to have the appearance of a Russian UAZ-like jeep. The car is clearly identifiable as a Land Rover Ninty by the shape of the bonnet and the air-vents beneath the windscreen.
