Remark Photographer
86-1676 (cn M-3181) This picture was taken at King Fahd International airport during Desert Shield. The Chinook was chocked and brakes were on. A C-130 took the wrong taxiway a closed taxiway and slammed the brakes on then the C130 reversed it engines and that prop wash is what pushed the helicpoter into the ditch. It was fixed on site and made the mission on 24th of Feb. 1991. Picture was restored to the best I could get it.
