If this does not Impress you


IF THIS DOES NOT IMPRESS YOU.....

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 Pennsylvania National 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 rooftop 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!

THIS is the guy that I would want flying my helicopter if they ever had to fly me from one hospital to another or from the scene of an accident.

This is just way too impressive for words - God bless guys like this pilot and the ones that are doing the loading, too!
