Ah the Viggie...I remember back in the old SFP1 days having that thing loaded with A2A missiles  and swatting many MiGs.

22 years ago, flight testing of the F-22 began at Edwards AFB

On the long flight across Ethiopia the passengers aboard the CH-53E, a US Navy SEAL team, reflected that it was a little over 24 hours since they had been checking into a luxury hotel in Dubai. They had just started a well-deserved spell of R&R after a particularly intense period of operations in the Persian Gulf.

Operating from Navy ships and aircraft they had been part of the protection for international shipping from Iranian aggression

As well taking on the occasional covert recon of Iranian facilities..

large.img00279.JPG.062d50a8136cf7183fbcd

(But that's a screenshot story for another time.)

It seemed like no sooner had the SEALs checked into the hotel in Dubai when the call came that they were to be picked up and flown back to Bahrain as a matter of urgency. Transport was enroute and they were to grab their gear and head to the roof ASAP...

large.img00004.JPG.069ffca0be3403ae966b8

'Hey pilot, don't go yet. We're missing a couple of the Team that went straight to the beach to hang with some air hostesses we met on the flight down.'

large.img00003.JPG.d982b718279b5ca9d050a

'No problem, we'll pick them up on the way'

large.img00001.JPG.77e3fe74ce53eb60a797d

A flight to Navy HQ in Bahrain, a hair-raising transit by speeding fully-loaded SUVs to the airport, and the SEALs were climbing aboard the Boeing 707 charity-chartered aid flight to Djibouti...

large.img00071.JPG.752053bc1bd1f345dcf4b

'Skipper, why couldn't we have just taken that flight?'

large.img00104.JPG.a64b437a3e79a5f523e48

''We don't know who's watching flight arrivals in Djibouti. And in any case we're being met at the airport there for a connecting flight. that we don't need the other passengers to see. Now shut up and get some sleep. You don't know when you'll get another chance.' 

large.img00079.JPG.020532e9fe8aeb4c6c83e

Turbulence shook the SEAL leader from his thoughts. The CH-53E was taking on fuel as it continued it's journey to Gondar, hub of USMC operations supporting the aid operation in-country on Ethiopia..

He opened the intel package that he had been handed on boarding the helo to find out just why he and his men had been plucked so urgently from the lap of luxury to exchange one desert battlefield for another.

To be continued...

As the sun began to set the SEAL Team leader reviewed the intel package..

A week ago an aid convoy heading for the remote villages near the Sudan border lost contact.

Of course search parties were launched to find them.

large.img00162.JPG.e3685477c22c7bb92b953 

48 hours ago a French C-160 on an aid drop flight spotted the convoy halted well off their route and called it in.

large.img00169.JPG.d30095c0775e011f2995e

The convoy consists of trucks carrying food and medical supplies, a portable clinic constructed from shipping containers, and a number of international doctors, nurses and aid workers, including 5 Americans.

large.img00195.JPG.217022cfd11bc09d79ec5

large.img00236.JPG.cde5f15836b7084cd2378

As suspected, the convoy was being held by Sudanese backed militia.

large.img00238.JPG.40817751704a911605d8f

It would be dark by the time the SEALs arrived at Gondar. They would head straight into the mission planning cell and get together with the Marines to plan a rescue that could be launched as soon as possible..

large.img00178.JPG.a0ce19e202aa0a3457893 

Sure enough, by morning the various elements were ready to go..

A KC-130 lifts off carrying the SEALs..

A blocking force of Marines, including Humvees and LAV-25s will be inserted between the convoy and the border to prevent the militia escaping with hostages...

large.img00224.JPG.35e103ae913be64fad245

 The KC-130's track takes it far enough from the convoy that it won't be noticed, but close enough that the SEALs can cover the distance comfortably and it's time to jump...
