I was finally able to wrestle the digital camera away from MacGyver last night and upload the pictures he took of the unit loading on to the C5s to fly to Pakistan to assist in the earthquake recovery effort.

All broken down. The unit had 5 days to disassemble 4 birds and get them on to the planes to transport.

Little by little.

The strongest guy in the unit!

How many Army men does it take to load a Chinook into a C5?

Tight fit.

MacGyver says that there is *maybe* an inch of clearance between the nose of the bird and the ground. TIGHT!

Almost.

What does it look like when a C5 barfs a Chinook?

My favorite shot - the light at the end of the tunnel.




Word has it that the unit is there and flying missions. Maybe now, Big Windy can get some rest.
