Four Sharks at Khe Sanh

Four Sharks in trail with rotors turning, awaiting the call to take off from Khe Sanh for Laos during Lam Son 719. The four aircraft pictured are, from the back to front: Battling Bitch; Grim Reaper; Surfer; and Ace of Spades. ALL of these helicopters were shot down in Laos within the next few days.
