I haven’t posted a Combat Pic in quite some time. I took this image during the fighting season in 2008 whilst on assignment as a photographer in Afghanistan. The Chinook helicopter, also called a Chook had landed and picked up Coalition Forces to extract them after an operation against the Taliban in Southern Afghanistan.
I have this small problem, I either watch or read the news several times a day for many reasons. and this is one of them. I found this on the news.com.au website and I must admit these images in this gallery are amazing and fabulous look in the past.
All of these images were taken in or around 1942 and this article explains how the photographer went about setting up the shot and what they went through to get that shot.
Well worth spending time reading the news if you ask me !
