This amazing image shows just a portion of an enormous force of 25 2nd Combat Aviation Brigade UH-60 Black Hawks hauling hundreds of US Marines and Republic of Korea forces during a vast long-rang assault drill last April.

The 25 Black Hawks departed as one thundering force and approached the landing zone supported by a wall of 4th Aerial Reconnaissance Battalion AH-64 Apache attack choppers. The joint forces drill was one of the largest helicopter mock assaults performed on the Korean Peninsula in years.

I have no confirmation if they had Flight Of The Valkyries playing on the loud speaker...
