AFGAN HELICOPTER PHOTO
If you don't think our military pilots earn their pay ... you need to take a look at this picture ... and then look again and realize what you're seeing . This photo was taken by a soldier in Afghanistan of a helo rescue mission.
The pilot is a PA Guard guy who flies EMS choppers in civilian life. Now how many people on the planet you reckon could set the ass end of a chopper down on the roof top of a shack on a steep mountain cliff and hold it there while soldiers load wounded men in the rear???
If this does not impress you ... nothing ever will. Gives me the chills and a serious case of the vertigo ... I can't even imagine having the nerve ... much less the talent and ability . God Bless our military!!!!!
Thanks Barry & Louise D.
They are certainly skilled
