"Junk Yard Dog" on a ferry flight to the 1106th AVCRAD for a rebuild. Back in the early 80s, Sikorsky used NASA-designed Kapton wiring for their aircraft, which while great for spaceships, was not so hot for a bird looking foreward to 25 years of hard service, hence 847 is running in to a lot of electrical gremlins. Now the ole sweetheart is looking foreward to new wiring, new engines, and rebuilt everything and a transfer out of active duty to a stateside national guard unit... good luck to her. 20D, 1/125th, F16, ISO100, Canon 28-135 @ 135mm.

Not bad for an Army guy. An Air Force geezer would probably tak e asteadier and sharper shot, whilst using a shutter speed at least three times slower. But on the whole, you get a 'well done' for this one Mike :)
