We saw a great stage production....and rode our favorite hang gliding ride.
Below picture I recently received from Fire Base Cobra...98 kms North East of Khandahar. Day-time load up for quick rope sortie in support of 2-75th Rangers (Rangers lead the way!)
Very rare to fly any daytime sorties...nearly all sorties are NVG multi ship NOE, but for some reason that day was an exception.
Daylight sorties truly suck...you take everything from foul language to IR spectrum self contained guided missle platforms. Night time no one screws with that which they can't see.
