A Canadian airman from the Canadian Helicopter Force Afghanistan mans a M134 Minigun, a 7.62 mm machine gun, on a Canadian CH-146 Griffon tactical helicopter as it flies over Kandahar City, Afghanistan, Jan. 18.
Technically, a minigun is in a separate category from a machine gun. That's still badass. Who says Canada sucks? France may be the parent country, but they established a dominance close to that of america.
This is an awesome photo! It reminds me of my first ride in a Huey Helicopter with my dad. We went to the Dayton Air Show and it was my first time seeing the Blue Angels. My dad took me on a helicopter ride as a surprise. We sat in the gunner seat. It was the best seats ever! When the helicopter was flying it turned, and the view was similar to this photo. All I could see down below was a whole bunch of small trees and endless rivers. It was beautiful. I've never flown in anything before and this was my first experience. I wanted to fly again, it was fun! After the ride, my hair was all over the place, the pilot pointed to me and said Huey hair! That was funny.
