Boeing Longbow Apache — - As both pilots use their IHADSS (Integrated Helmet And Display Sighting System) to view him, an Atlantic Aviation agent marshals an Apache helicopter to a ramp parking position. However, since their IHADSS system allows them to aim that M230 Chain Gun cannon merely by looking at their target, perhaps that agent is not marshaling ... maybe he is surrendering.

I was so preoccupied with getting a great closeup snap of the pilots sighting the ramp agent with the IHADSS helmets and wondering how the agent felt as he stared straight at that M230 cannon pointed directly at him that at first I failed to notice something else: specifically, that the pylon closest to me was not completely empty of armament. It still held a Hellfire missile -- and it was pointed directly at ME. When I noticed the Hellfire, my next thought was that I should probably raise my hands too. (grin)
