[Photo] U.S. Army CH-47s flying over ocean of snow in Afghanistan

There can be some snow in Afghanistan in this part of the year as this photo shot from a U.S. Army chopper shows.

Activity in Afghanistan is not affected by freezing temperature recorded during this part of the year.

According to the U.S. Army, the photo was taken by an Apache of the 1st Bn., 227th Avn. Reg, “First Attack”, but the type of blade that can be seen in the upper portion of the frame seems to point towards another CH-47 Chinook, rather than an AH-64D Apache.

Anyway, an attack chopper the Air Cavalry Brigade, 1st Cavalry Division was most probably escorting the “convoy”, hence the caption.

    Dave, at least link to the original photo on DVIDS. And having spent a bit more than three years in Afghanistan/Central Asia, yes activity (ours and theirs) IS affected by freezing temps and snowfall.
