The Iraqi pilots fighting for Falluja

Iraqi government troops are facing heavy resistance from the fighters of self-styled Islamic State (IS) as they try to fight their way towards Falluja.

More than 1,000 members of the Iraqi forces have been wounded since the start of the operation and the military have becoming increasingly reliant on air power.

The BBC's Nafiseh Kohnavard has been given exclusive access to the Iraqi army's aviation wing's missions over Falluja.
