    You’re welcome. Never in my lifetime did I think I would get this opportunity.
    Would be nice to find one of the hundred or so people on the ground that got photos of us with the flag and Liberty.

    Some incredible shots! Seriously had to be an experience of a life time. Not many people can say they’ve done that.

    WOW, thanks for sharing your experience. What an honor that must have been.
    Gotta love 'merica.

    Not sure if you are on FB (I'm not) but you may have success spreading the word, and may find those pics you seek.;)

    Awesome photos
    I also see a lanyard release connector I designed when I worked for another company, you can see them hanging next to the pilots in a couple of the photos

    Thank you all and you’re welcome. Happy to share. I’m waiting on photos from the other aircraft that got photos of us with the flag and hopefully the Statue.

    Nice to see your lanyards are being put to use and still being used!

    Looks like they aren't being used.
    There should be a cable running from the pilots to the lanyard connectors...its a quick release to make it easier for them to exit the aircraft.

    That’s the Air Force’s Pave Hawk/“special bird”.

    I was in the HH-60M (Medivac) aircraft attached pic and with the above photos, per the cockpit pics you see.

    Are you talking about the two cables hanging from the ceiling on the inboard side of the pilots? If so, that’s for the HUD. While there is a day HUD and night HUD, most only wear the HUD with NVG’s.
