OH-58 Kiowa Warriors at Yakima Airport

I was fortunate enough to be in the vicinity when a pair of OH-58 Kiowa Warriors began practicing approaches today.  I managed to snag a few photos.  These two have no doubt been operating at the Yakima Firing Center, an off shoot from Fort Lewis.  Enjoy the photos.  The choppers were exceptionally quiet.

USS Guardian Aground in the Sulu Sea.

The Navy continues to have problems.  The Minesweeper Guardian ran hard aground on the morning of the 16/17th (depending on where you were) in the Sulu Sea.  Several submarine collisions in the past year and now this.  I seem to recall that the USS Darter also came to grief on a reef in that general area of the globe.  You can see the article here.
