Seabirds: A Sweep in the Deep

September 2021

Minesweeping is the removal of explosive naval mines, usually by a specially designed ship, but also with specially equipped helicopters. The MH-53E Sea Dragon helicopter is used by the United States Navy to tow mine sweeping gear through the water, in particular the Mk-105 minesweeping sled. Its twin magnetic tails, consisting of open-electrode magnetic sweeps, are towed behind the sled, detonating mines to clear the water for safe shipping.

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!
