UH-60 Blackhawk Helicopters take on troops for Transport

A squad of at least 13 soldiers approaches the second Blackhawk, which has just landed.  Infantry men are also boarding the blackhawk in the foreground.  We had been trained to approach the helicopter from the nose whenever possible in order to keep clear of the dangerous tail rotor.

More civilians watching us from behind the safety of the fence surrounding the basketball court at Cuthbert Peter's Park.
