Photographer's Note

Dans ma s廨ie Medevac, l'h幨icopt鋨e allemand de type CH-53 nous a d廧os pour l'exercice d'憝acuation de bless廥 dans les montagnes afghanes.
Le CH-53 Sea Stallion est le nom le plus commun pour le Sikorsky S-65 la famille des gros-porteurs des h幨icopt鋨es de transport. D憝elopp l'origine pour 皻re utilis par l'United States Marine Corps, il est aussi en service pour l'Allemagne, le Mexique, Iran, Isra螔. Son troisi鋗e moteur le rend plus puissant que le Sea Stallion. Ceci est important pour les vols en montagne, surtout en 彋, car d'autres h幨icopt鋨es ne savent m瘱e pas d嶰oller cette altitude.

In my Medevac series, the German helicopter CH-53, we used for a casualty evacuation exercise in the mountains of Afghanistan.
The CH-53 Sea Stallion is the most common name for the Sikorsky S-65 family of heavy-lift transport helicopters. Originally developed for use by the United States Marine Corps, it is also in service with Germany, Mexico, Iran, Israel, and as the MH-53 Pave Low with the United States Air Force. Its third engine makes it more powerful than the Sea Stallion, which it has replaced in the heavy-lift mission.
This is important in those Afghanistan mountain missions because of the high altitude, especially in the summer. Other helicopters can't even take off...
