Photo of the Week
May 9, 1999

UH-60 "Black Hawk" and CH-47 "Chinook" helicopters hovering of the The Bridge of Americas" during an exercise recently.  Rodman is in the background.

Note and photos from Jeff Bezore, Sugarbears (CH-47) First Sergeant (Retired).  All credits for these photos belong to the soldiers of the 228th Aviation who took them. The 228th's legacy in Panama is legendary and will be sorely missed I'm sure. Christmas sponsorship flights to the interior, disaster relief missions to Costa Rica, peace keeping in Ecuador, airliner crashes in Columbia, and a multitude of mangled machetero victims MEDEVACd to the Big City.
