The title says it all. Here a Marine CH-53 "Sea Stallion" awaiting its crew on the flightline at a former Iraqi base in central Iraq.

Lucky! I haven't been lucky enough to be around the birds at sunset or sunrise.

Thanks! We were on a guntruck mission to this base and I happened to step out of the chow hall just in time to see the sun was going down so I grabbed a HMMWV and headed up to the flightline. Just so happened that this was sitting on one of the taxi-ways off to the side.

Awesome! I'm hoping to be able to get some shots like this one when I get back to the larger base.

Thanks! I got really lucky with this one. Happened to step outside the tent and saw the sun going down so grabbed the camera and the nearest HMMWV (humvee) and got up to the flightline just in time to snap this shot.
