Soldiers from the 160th Special Operations Aviation Regiment (Airborne) guide an MH-47G Chinook helicopter along the sometimes crowded streets surrounding the Opryland Hotel in Nashville, Tenn. All 14 Army and industry helicopters on display at this year's Army Aviation Association of America Annual Convention landed at one of two remote parking lots surrounding the hotel and were pulled from the improvised heliports into the convention center. The 160th SOAR (A) served as "air boss" for the fly-in and will perform similarly when they reverse the process after the convention. (Photo by Walt Sokalski, USASOC PAO)

The first photo of the mechanic talking to the SMA is great. :cool:I was a mech XO and BN Maintenance Officer and I had nothing but love for my mechanics and their Chief. A "motivational" poster I saw once put it well:

Mechanic: Where a high school diploma fixes what a college degree screws up.
