I've seen lots of Blackhawks and especially since my son used to fly them. But I never cease to be amazed at how large they really are.

As I approached the airport today, I saw two helicopters on approach.  I
assumed they were on a training flight from Fort Campbell, KY.  As I
watched the first two shut down on the ramp, another flight of two
landed.  I spoke with one of the pilots, who said these were the newest
aircraft in the Army fleet, on their way from the factory to a base in
Texas.  The ferry crews were all Army personnel.

Here are the four, lined up for refueling.

Here is one of the Blackhawks as it departed.

And, yes, the line girl was in charge of the fueling, though she had a
helper.  She always does a great job.

Please view LARGE.
