In San Diego last week, my brother got us on to the San Diego Naval Base to meet his friend, Lt Cmdr Chris. He's the senior pilot for the Black Knight Squadron, a long-famous squadron that picked up 5 of the Lunar SPace Capsules after they came back to earth. Lt Cmdr Chris was piloting the first helicopter to touch down after the massively destructive Japan Tsunami last year.
A rare look at one of the Helicpoters in the Black Knight Squadron.
See the gun in the photo below:
We got a very a close-up look at these guns, as well as some Self-guided missiles used on these copters:
Thanks to my brother Dave and his friend, Lt Cmdr Chris!
