|Rotors on the Storm
The modern attack helicopter was created by the U.S. Army. The Bell AH-1G Cobra (top left) was the first helicopter designed specifically for the attack mission during the Vietnam conflict. The Boeing/Hughes AH-6/MH-6 Little Bird (top right) continues to fly close-in fire support and special ops missions. The first shots of Operation Desert Storm were fired against Iraqi early warning radar sites by Boeing AH-64 Apache helicopters. (From the collection of Craig Nixon)
Note: Each month a different image from the current calendar year is featured here. To avoid
the gnawing 12-month period of suspense to see all 12 pieces (along with lots of aviation
anniversaries (When did the first pig fly?), incredible trivia (What is Godzilla's "birthday"?),
and outrageous quotes from people that should know better) place your
order for the Aerocatures Calendar now!
