    Sounds great! Probably wouldn't have been to good for when we always used to get fire from friendly areas when we flew over at night.

      Helicopter Protection....

      Hated to take fire from any place. BUT, on the return flight, we'd always fly back over the same ville, and give a bunch of it back. They learned to not fire at me after a few times.

        "FRIENDLY" FIRE...sorta

        We used to take sniper fire from a "friendly" ville just to the east of the
        runway at Phu Bai...,until an "accident discharge" occurred while clearing
        the starboard '50 on approach.
        Either the "friendly" was terminated..,or he learned how to read & interpret
        side markings.
        Sure is a passle of paper work involved & slight deviations from the truth,
        but the rewards justified the means.
