Reddog Posted November 8, 2004 Report Share Posted November 8, 2004 Here's another one for you'all. On the Kuwait / Iraq border after the first Gulf war a 212 crew landed at UN HQ in Umqasr to pick up the UN Commander to transport him to Kuwait city for a meeting. Unbeknownst to the crew the local devils brigade of pint sized slingshot shooters scored a direct hit on the leading edge of one of the tail rotor blades. Off the 212 went to Kuwait city returning and landing after dark. No one noticed anything amiss until the next morning when Sharkbait went out to DI the machine and comes running back into the hangar with tales of people shooting at our a/c. Out we all went and sure enough there was a hole big enough to put two fingers into without touching the metal and the crew said they hadn't felt a thing. Go figure.
