Al Asad, Iraq, 09 January 2005 — A CH-53E Super Stallion demonstrates its strength by lifting a decommissioned Assault Amphibian Vehicle weighing approximately 25,000 pounds. The helicopter’s blades and power created hurricane-like winds for the Marines on the ground to work in. The Marines on the ground, responsible for hooking the cargo to the hovering aircraft, are members of a helicopter support team with Combat Service Support Battalion 7, 1st Force Service Support Group. The vehicle was intended for use as a target for aircraft of the 3rd Marine Aircraft Wing.
