Painted Like a Bird of Prey Operating in Afghanistan-Fiction!
Summary of the eRumor Pictures of a military
combat helicopter are circulated with a message that says "our
boys" across the water painted it to look like a bird of
prey. The message says it's operating in Afghanistan and is
"no doubt causing quite a stir."
The pictures are not of an American
helicopter, but of a Russian MI-24 "Hind" assault
helicopter. It was used extensively by the Soviets in
Afghanistan but this paint-job does not appear to be for
combat. We suspect it is for purposes of promotion or public
performance. There are some pictures of it on display at an
air show at Szentkirályszabadja, Hungary. Whether there are
others like it, we don't know, the the only pictures of this paint
scheme are all on the same helicopter designated number 117.
A real example of the eRumor as it has
appeared on the Internet:
Some Afghan is probably freaking out right
about now. The story is: this very special helicopter
is presently flying in Afghanistan, where it is no doubt
causing quite a stir.
