This looks almost exactly like Blackhawk ops at Camp Victory in Iraq. I worked pretty close to their base, and was a passenger on a flight to visit an Iraqi prison. I can almost hear the two birds in your shot!

Most welcome - I've been a passenger in the Navy version of the Blackhawk (Seahawk) a number of times, as well as the Aussie version, and Marine Corps UH-46s and a UH-1. Helicopters are awesome, you can't fly that "low and slow" in most fixed-wing aircraft!
