Is this kewl, or what??

My mom just sent this to me and I thought I would share. I want to meet the artist :)

Check out what some of our boys overseas did to their helicopter.
Some Afghan is probably freaking out right about now.
The story is: this very special Mi-24 helicopter is presently flying in Afghanistan, where it is no doubt causing quite a stir.

Actually, the helicopter was a MiL-24 Hind, and owned by a Hungarian for air shows. Here's the link to the story on the home of Internet de-bunking, Snopes.

Sorry to burst your jubilant bubble, Jim... it would be freaky to see one coming at you, though!
