Camp Fallujah, Iraq, 02 July 2005 — The crew of an AH-1 Cobra conducts a post-flight rundown of their helicopter. The Cobra and the CH-46E Sea Knight transport helicopter in the background, stood by for possible casualty evacuation missions. Due to inclement weather at their base Camp Taqaddum, the pre-positioning marked the first time the helicopters and their crews, assigned to Marine Aircraft Group 26, 2nd Marine Aircraft Wing (FWD), used the landing zones for a more rapid aerial response to those injured in the battlefield.
