Helicopter Landing at Night in Afghanistan

Michael Yon snapped a photo of what appears to be a Chinook landing in Afghanistan at night as the rotor blades and dust creates a mini light show which is actually fairly dangerous.


MICHAEL YON SENDS A PHOTO FROM AFGHANISTAN, and reports: “I made this photo last night in Helmand Province, Afghanistan. ... The sparks coming off the rotors occur when the helicopters land in hot, dusty conditions. The landing itself occurs in a dangerous ‘brownout.’ Brownout danger is compounded by the sparks which light up the dust and can confuse pilots who are wearing extremely sensitive nightvision goggles.”
